The size of a shape is determined by the length of its edge, shown as distance "S" below. This makes matching of shapes very easy. A 1" hexagon goes with a 1" diamond, which goes with a 1" triangle, etc.
Make life easier on yourself by cutting out squares from your fabric instead of a hexagon. This gives you more fabric to turn over, allowing you to easily baste without fussing with only 1/4" of fabric. And don't worry, it will still lay flat with that extra amount of fabric!
