New Hexie Books!
Lately I have been obsessed with hexagons!! I have loved the hexagon shape since I began making hexagon quilts in the late 1990's. I've made SEVERAL, believe me. There is something about the shape itself, about the way they fit together, just trying to get along. There are several ways to put them together, and there seems to be no end to the new ideas these days (the Hexagon Star Rose in the last post being the latest). I highly recommend both the books shown above, both arrived this week from Amazon.com .The Outside the Box book refers back to the Kansas City Star patterns from the 1930's to 40's. These old patterns never really grow old, eh? The Pieced Hexie book has lots of new and unique ideas for pieced hexagons. Anyone else out there Hexie-crazy? God Bless!
