As the title suggests, this book is all about hexagons!!! They seem to have been all over blog land lately and amazing as they look, they can seem a little intimidating at first, especially the thought of making entire quilts out of them.
Well, the wonderful Tacha completely takes the intimidation factor out of the word hexagon. She very throughly explains every thing you ever wanted to know, provides templates and info on where to download hexagon papers from the web, shows you how to cut, baste and stitch together your hexagons in multiple methods (so you can choose the one that suits you to a tee) and then provides a whole host of tempting projects all with a modern, fresh style.
Her writing style is thorough and jam packed with tips and techniques, yet all the information is delivered in a simple and easy to follow manner.
I couldn't wait to start stitching a project right away!
My first completed project from the book is this cute needle case. I used fabrics from my new Sew Stitchy range and found that the hexagons in my Hexagon print are the perfect size to use for the rosette on the front.
Inside the needlecase, there's plenty of space to park those needles.
Stash books have offered to giveaway a copy of Hex a go go to one of my readers.
To enter you just need to leave me a comment letting me know what fabrics you would use to make your first hexagon project from this book? The twist is that they must be fabrics you already have in your stash (no cheating now).
The giveaway is open internationally, the prize will be a physical copy for US readers or an e-book of international readers. I'll pick a winner on Friday!
