    Hi Guys,

    Could you tell me what the little plastic hexagons to make a grandmothers garden quilt are called?

    Hugs

    Caroline

    Im not sure that I know what you mean, but I think you are looking for the hexagon template? Not sure if that was helpful or not. =/

    Do you mean the template?
    You can make your own. Here is a neat way to do it:

    They are English paper piecing foundations, and are meant to be re-used.

    I think you mean template....then you mark on to cardstock or scrap and cut them up and there you have your paper foundations. I do believe you can buy laser cuts of the foundation papers...but I do it the old fashioned way!

    I didn't want to spend the $$$ on templates...
    so I used this website http://www.incompetech.com/graphpaper/hexagonal/ to create the size hexies I wanted and printed a few sheets.

    (Just save the file so that if you need more you can print them.)

    I re-use my papers until they wear out!

    make your own templates using old cardboard (the thin kind is great)....any money saved is good!!!
