    Two questions: do you mark every single hexagon?
    Also, you don't tie a knot at all? Just one back stitch?

    I mark every hexagon. Maybe after a while I won't have to but I'm new to hand piecing.
    Yes, Tie a not before and each time you end off.

    Update on No-Paper Hexagons

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...s-t246917.html
    Made a major change on the tutorial from cardboard to metal template. Posting here so it's not missed.
    UPDATE: NEW Step 2, 3, and 4

    A week after I made and used the cardboard template with holes I received ARDCO Hexagon Window Metal Template.


    Itís twice as fast to mark seeing lines on hexes! And super for marking fussy cuts! I purchased the 1″ metal template for the 1.25″ die cut fabric. Fits perfect and will not slide.
    I ordered mine over the phone from ARDCO (757)553-8689 (trouble ordering from web site)
