I was thrilled when Tacha Bruecher asked me to be a part of her inaugural book tour. Tacha is a quilt designer and teacher who blogs under Hanies Quilts and is part of the fabulous Fat Quarterly design team.
I adore hexagons of any sort, and it has been wonderful to flick through Tacha's book where she brings the sometimes old-fashioned hexie into our modern world with great flair. Tacha has included wonderful, clear instructions on various 'how to' methods for making the hexies, different stitching styles and pattern suggestions for great quilting ideas.
In Tacha's own words...Hexagons are so wonderfully portable - quilting's answer to knitting! I totally agree with her. Whenever we have to drive long distances I try and make sure I pack some hexies to work on in the car.
You will find 16 beautiful projects in this book from table mats to wallhangings to quilts and other projects in between! My personal favourites are where she has mixed text fabrics with colour to produce eye-catching designs.
Keep an eye out for the rest of the Hexa Go-Go book tour. Oh, and if you pop back to Katy at
