Half Hexagon Template

1 piece for cutting 6 sizes of half-hexagons: 2, 2½, 3, 3½, 4 and 4½ inches on a finished side

The #1 reason for a point-to-point half-hexagon template is to eliminate set-in or “Y” seams in quilts that feature hexagon shapes. The From Marti Michell Multiple-size Half-Hexagon will enable you to cut half-hexagons in 6 sizes—the same 6 sizes as are available on our Multiple Size Hexagon and the 60° Diamond tools. Matching equilateral triangle sizes are included on both the small and large equilateral Triangle Rulers. If you are new to using the From Marti Michell 60° family tools, we measure these shapes by the length of the finished side (see page 1).

To make it easy to see the pros and cons of both half- and whole hexagons, we did a very informal test and cut the right half of Bluebirds in Grandma’s Garden, shown above, with the largest hexagon (4½″) on the Multiple Size Hexagon Ruler and the left half with the matching size Half-Hexagon Ruler.

We found that cutting and arranging the half-hexagons took a little longer because there were more cuts to make and more pieces to sort, move around and arrange on the design wall. However, sewing and pressing the half-hexagons was faster than sewing and pressing the whole hexagons with set-in seams.

Half Hexagon Test Quilt

So, it comes down to how you feel about the seams down the middle of the hexagons and your personal anxiety level about “Y” seams. Isn’t it great we have both options!
