Reviews

May 12 Fat Quarterly e-zine cofounder and quilt blogger Bruecher introduces contemporary quilters to the classic art of English paper piecing in this collection, which focuses on paper-pieced designs made with hexagons. The projects, which range from a beginner-friendly, seven-hexagon needle case to a king-sized bedspread that uses 1,666 pieced hexagons, implement fabric choices to make an old technique fresh and modern. Hexagon templates, as well as easy-to-follow basic directions for paper piecing, are included. VERDICT The modern quilt movement is at its best when it finds creative ways to make classic techniques fit in with modern tastes. Bruecher has done just that with this collection of patterns, and a new generation of quilters will benefit from her expertise. Library Journal, USA July 12 A great place to look for hexagonal inspiration is the new book from Stash Books - Hexa-Go-Go - written by Tacha Bruecher. With sixteen projects to choose from there is plenty for any skill level and interest in hexies. She mixes them up for a modern twist on a traditional quilting technique, using hexies to create the stripes in the American flag, squaring them up for quilt blocks and to make both stars and diamonds!
