Hexagons are so hot right now. Use them whole, cut them in half or make them from diamonds and triangle. Whichever way, you will find lots of patterns available. And so it is with this book which contains 14 patterns. Those patterns include runners, pincushions, coasters, quilts and a mat that could be for a candle or cup. The first 60 plus pages give you all the basics you need to draft, draw, cut and sew with hexagons. The projects are shown with a full page color photo of the item. The name of the item, finished size and a paragraph about it are next. The written instructions include a material and cutting list and plenty of graphics to keep you on track. How the item was quilted is described which I love when an author does that. With over 160 pages of how-to do it and so many patterns, you will be sewing hexagons in your sleep.
