Okay Sandy,

Im listening you will need 1/2 " hexagons http://incompetech.com/graphpaper/hexagonal/ if you use the link it should be the correct size. Now i know some are not comfortable with working with something this small (including me for one) however i did it this small so the design would come out, if anyones really not happy with ones these small wait until i post the design and play around with bigger hexagons. At least Kris should be happy working with one this smalll.

lots of love

Francesxx

Girls you dont have to do 81 hexies you could do bigger hexies with less hexies.

this is the block i finished it about 15 mins ago.

so you could do just one of the diamonds instead of 4, I did it this way because ifs my favourite design im not keen on GFG but i really like field of diamonds, so i was prepared to cope with 1/2" hexies, however i think its the last lot of 1/2" hexies i will ever do, and Kris is doing a whole quilt of 1/2 inch hexies mad.

lots of love

Frances I will do the 81 half inch hexies; I like this design!  If I end up hating it, I never have to do it again and I can say I did do a block of half inch hexagons. :D  Your block looks like grapes clusters to me- I love it!

Just printed out the 1/2 in hexies.  I can't wait to get started.  I'm loving this sampler idea.

Its wonderful to have you with us, a huge welcome to you, its a learning curve for all of us, im tending to make it up as i go along and trying to get away from the idea that all EPP is Grandmothers flower garden.
