    Joann's had the templates at one time, you might check online with them.
    There are sites where you can get the hexagon shapes for free and then you can use template plastic to cut out your own templates and in different sizes :D:D:D

    I got mine from Equiltsusa.com

    The ladie's name is Pat and she is in California. She makes acrylic templates and I buy a lot from her. She sells on ebay also. She also has forms to fill out to special order templates. Hope this helps you fine what you are looking for.

    I believe this is Pati Shambaugh's site. She was the originator of the quit pati's I think. I would think you could get them at most quilt shops.

    I use to buy the pre cut ones here:

    paperpieces.com


    I had a hard time removing the plastic ones. A quilting friend showed me how easy it was to sew and join the hexes all at the same time without using the templates. It's so much easier. She said that was the way her great grandmother taught her mother and her mother taught her. I'll try to explain how I do it. It's very basic.
    Join two hexes right sides together and stitch 1/4 seam starting 1/4 from the end and ending 1/4 from the end. Add another hex to another side of one of the hexes already sewn and repeat. It's fast and no stitches show at all. No basting or whip stitching.

    Do you do this by hand or by machine?

    Here's a site:

    I see Bella already posted it. Sorry!!! Bella I'm trying to visualize how you do this. Actually sounds very interesting. You just basically sew them together? Bet lots of spray starch is involved.
