    Hi Tabby,

    The templates for this are sold by a LQS here in Arkansas called Hickory Hill Quilt and Sewing Center. They are their own design and they sell them in their shop. They're about a 1/2 hour away from me, so I went over there last week and bought some for members here who wanted one and mailed them to them. It'll probably be a while before I head over that way again, but if you want to contact them directly I feel pretty sure they would do mail order for you. Their e-mail address is info@hhqsewingcenter.com If they can't do mail order for you, then let me know and I can get you one the next time I'm over there. It may be a couple of weeks or so, though.

    I tried one this morning. It was a disaster,but I can do it now. My problem was the pressing and burning my fingers. I think I am going to make cardboard templates to use to press them around for better creases....Yours look so nice!!

    Is this set the small, medium or large set?

    Thanks Eddie for the great tutorial.

    This is the Small set that I did the demo with above, and the size is wrong in my original quote above - I should have said that it is 2.5" finished size from top to bottom, not 3.5". The Small set is 2.5" finsihed size, the Large set is 3.5" finished size, and the Extra Large set is 6.5" finished size.

    Eddie, thanks for an excellent lesson here. I've bought just a regular hexagon template today and am going to give this a try before the holidays. A few years back we had the attached post and some really cute Christmas ornaments. Take a look. You need to scroll down a bit for the pictures.

    Fun! Aren't they?

    Thanks again.
    Yvonne
