Here is what worked best for me: for the jelly roll 2.5" strips, the small half hexagon from Missouri Star Quilt Co. worked nicely. For the 10" squares (layer cake) I used Lori Holt's large Hexie Half ruler.
I was very lucky finding a layer cake since this design was released 3 years ago ... and was more short on fabric than I thought. No worries - white Kona came to my rescue to fill out the gaps.
A half hexagon quilt, much like a tumbler quilt, has to be laid out row by row to balance color.
It is easier to see the hexagon shapes when the 'top' and 'bottom' hexi's match, but if you don't have enough fabric - mismatched works fine - as does combining the two different sizes.
The half hexagon templates are fun - the larger size is my favorite as it comes together really, really fast! Quilting was done with Aurifil 50wt white in a loose zigzag, 2" apart - making a beautiful design through the batting and flannel back.
