Make a hexagon template with an old plastic container, or some card stock (like I did). If you& just beginning, you should start with at least a inch template, although I used a 2 inch hexagon for this tutorial.
Vintage quilt made with hexagons. Can't tell the pattern from this snippet. Looks like it was machine pieced using fabric scraps; the hexagons aren't precise enough to have been pieced using English Paper Piecing. A nice vintage look.
