It seems like many quilters have a go with hexagons at some point. I have an ongoing hexagon project based on an antique quilt I saw in a book.
It’s been years and the end is nowhere in sight, but I’m sticking with it because I love the fabrics and I am going to love the quilt someday.
Now there’s a link party going on, which means that various readers have posted links to hexagon projects they are working on. So much inspiration!
And if all of that isn’t enough, you can visit Ali’s Pinterest board of hexagon projects to get your creative juices flowing.
The friendly folks at C&T’s Stash Books recently sent me a review copy of Hexa-Go-Go, the new title by Tacha Bruecher featuring 16 English paper piecing projects. It’s a wonderful book for anyone interested in hexagons and the myriad projects in which they can be used.
See a Google Preview of Hexa-Go-Go. My favorite projects are the Union Jack Quilt shown below and the Treehouse Hideaway Quilt.
Let’s give this copy of Hexa-Go-Go to a Quilty Pleasures reader who wants to try some hexagons.
