Read all about hexagons and the power of this 6-sided shape in quilt-making. You can use templates, precut papers or print shapes onto fabric. This book provides inspiration for using hexagons. Find out all about hexie block making, cutting, sewing, piecing and quilt making. Create tumbling blocks or stretch and skew that hexie to make beautiful quilts. My favourite is the baby heart quilt. Clear instructions with superb photos and colour line drawings. There is a short design primer at the back of the book and templates.
