A hexie flower for One Flower Wednesday

I've been bitten by the hexie bug!  Last Friday night, I noticed a button on another blog, One Flower Wednesday.  Curious, I clicked on it, and discovered a whole new shape.  Oh, how pretty those hexie flowers are!  Right away I wanted to print and start cutting templates, but my computer wouldn't play, printer wouldn't print. I had to wait until the next day for my LQS to open.  I went in the next day and asked for templates or ruler, just any hexagon making supplies that they had.  The owner asked me, would you like to know a quicker way to make them? I said, sure!  She pulled out a bag full of hexies, a project she is working on, and showed me how to take a circle of fabric, any size, and make a hexagon out of it.  I was so excited, I had to buy some new fabric, couldn't walk out of there without buying something, after she had showed me such a wonderful time-saving technique.  Her name is Rita, and her store is called Quiltsmith's, I just have to give her credit for showing me this.  I went home and made a hexie flower.
