The dynamic design duo of Dr. Peggy Rhodes and Julia C. Wood brings new life to the hot trend of quilting with hexagons-they make hand piecing these little gems fast and fun. Use any size circle to yield the hexies you desire. Then use the authors' Reference Guide to determine yardage, another chart to figure how many you'll need, and two sizes of graph paper to draft your own unique hexie design. Make any of the 12 projects or create your own unique hexie quilt. The most common format for hexagon use is Grandmother's Flower Garden, and the authors explain a bit of history for color use and alternate names and arrangements. This book is a true hexie-lovers' delight.

- Quick & Easy Hexie Quilts — Review by Kathie R Kerler
- Clever way to construct hexagons from fabric circles. The authors give credit to those who taught them the technique, but i don't think it's well-known. It's certainly new to me. Along with the technique, the authors show how to adapt hexagons to a variety of quilt styles, such as mosaics and modern. The reference guide seems very useful in providing the number of hexies required to make quilts from throw to king-size. (Posted on 8/11/13)
