Want to learn a super fun and fast way to make quilts with hexies? How about making some innovative hexie designs? Today, I’m going to share insights about a new book that was recently published by Landauer Publishing that is packed with #CreativeGoodness.
Fast-Fold Hexies, by Mary M Hogan, was officially released at Spring Quilt Market! Mary shares an innovated technique in this book, as well as some fun projects.
A new way to make hexies!
Quilt makers will be in awe of Mary M. Hogan’s newest innovation – fast-fold hexies! Just when you thought that there can’t be anything new beneath the hexagon quiltmaking sun, along comes a new and clever technique to make what quilters love easier and faster!
Hexagon quilts are certainly on-trend today, and have been around since the 1880s. Quilters love their versatility because they are so adaptable to both modern and traditional designs. Yet hexagon quilts can be challenging to piece, and so readers will rejoice at a new technique that streamlines the process.
Fast-Fold Hexies from Pre-cuts & Stash is a slender book jam-packed with how-to wisdom. It takes readers through the step-by-step process to create each unit from a folded circle of fabric, inserting a hexagon-shaped piece of batting, and then adding another, smaller hexie on top to hide raw edges. Quilters can sew by machine, or by hand when out and about. The technique creates one complete hexie unit, and when you sew the units together, you get a two-sided quilt with no separate batting, backing or binding!
Readers will find the following in Fast-Fold Hexies from Pre-cuts & Stash:
- 4 projects: from a trivet to a lap quilt
- Easy how-to and step-by-step: clear photography makes the hexie units’ construction a snap
- Includes templates for fabric circles and hexagon-shaped batting
- On-line links to coloring diagrams and additional projects!
- 16 pages, only $12.95
Fast-Fold Hexies is a very innovative book with a great technique that is perfect for quilters of all levels, as well as easy to follow instructions on 4 creative projects. When you consider the price of one stand alone pattern, the retail price on this book is an amazing value.
