Pieced Hexies Preview! ((& Give-Away!))

***NOTE!! The Drawing is now CLOSED!!***



I’ve been blessed to have many talented quilters cross my path ---and my life has been enhanced and enriched by all I have learned from them. I am re-charged by their energy, I am re-fueled by their sense of humor, or their wisdom and understanding. Some I have taught with on various occassions, but no one has crossed my path in more ways than my friend Mickey Depre!

If you’ve been lucky enough to take any of her workshops or hear her lecture, or own one of her other books, you know exactly what I mean!

We met at the Gulf States Quilting Association a couple years ago. A month later we found ourselves meeting up again and teaching for the Virginia Consortium of Quilters. From there we found we were next-door-roomies at the Road to California quilt show in 2011!

I was lucky enough to have her drop in on me this past spring when I came to Illinois – and I got to meet her other hilarious half, her hubby Paul!

And now I get to be honored to give you the heads up on Mickey’s fabulous new book!

You know how *I* Love hexies --- well Mickey’s spin on it leaves me in the dust in so many ways. As her Pieced Hexies facebook page header states: A blank hexie is just a wannabe pieced hexie!

She has taken English paper piecing and set it on it’s ear!

It’s modern,

It’s fresh,

It’s fun,

It’s addictive,

It’s fabulous!

The possibilities are endless!

In Pieced Hexies you will discover the 7 basics.

And from there discover ways to change those and watch them evolve into completely new designs.

Once the possibilities emerge, the ideas do not stop coming!

And in Mickey’s own words….

210334_476796455673288_328139235_o

“A Hexie Quilt does not have to be entirely made of Hexies!

Use your Pieced Hexie motifs as Applique!”

I had a little fun making hexie collages of my favorite of Mickeys designs:

mickey 035

Whooowhooooo!

mickey 036

Don’t you love these?!

mickey 037

The techniques are unbelievably easy ---with fantastic results!

Pieced Hexies is due out any day now and Mickey is taking pre-orders on her website.

To celebrate Mickey’s release of Pieced Hexies with Kansas City Star, we are having a GIVE-AWAY!!

Drop me a comment below and I will draw a winner upon my return from South Carolina – I’m driving back home on Sunday and should be home in the evening ---if I’m too dead tired, maybe we’ll make it Monday Morning! LOL!

If your email address is not linked to your blogger account, or if you are signing in as ANONYMOUS you must leave your name and email address so we can contact you. If there is no email address on the person we draw, we will draw someone else!

I’ll be choosing one winner to win an autographed copy of Pieced Hexies direct from Mickey Depre!

I can’t wait to see the quilts you are going to make after seeing this book!

Good luck, Everyone!


***PS*** If you have already pre-ordered Pieced Hexies and WIN, Mickey will refund and cancel your first order so you won't end up with two copies unless you want them!

LOVE this twist on hexies! Can't wait to try them.

PS - WRT your lament on the boring bow-tie assembly - why not assemble them as leaders / enders? I did an entire queen-sized quilt that way after reading your book. Even included the borders (which might be considered a stretch :) )

Looks like a great book.

Dee Roth said...

Wow--what an innovative idea! I've been doing just plain, regular hexies for about a year--I use them as handwork to do if I'm on vacation or waiting for my mother at the doctor's. Not sure I'm ready for this level of complexity yet, but I'd like to try.

It's one of those ingenius ideas that makes you think - why didn't someone think of this before? My friend and fellow quild member has been doing hexes for a while now and if I won I would give the book to her (I know she would share it with me).

What a neat idea, it makes my hexes look so plain. Have a safe trip, Bonnie!

Mary said...

Wow! These are amazing! And beautiful! I can't imagine all the tiny pieces, but sure would like to learn more about it. Thanks for a chance to win.

I started a hexie box a few months ago - and love the ideas that you have posted and are in the book.

Bonnie, I am usually proud of my blind hem stitch; but when I recently tried joining some hexies, I did not like how my stitches showed. I need some tips or to take a class. Maybe if my hexies were as creative as Mickey's, I would not mind seeing my stitches joining them. I would love to win a copy of her new book. Thank you for all your inspiration for design possibilities, sewing and quilting.

Exciting idea! I'd love to win.

Sherry said...

I haven't gotten that far into hexies yet. . . .but I think it will be a great portable project (after I finish some of my UFO's).

Fantastic, contemporary twist on ancient designs! And I think your hexie project is, at least in part, responsibile for the hexagon revival in our world. You've taken this around the world for 10 years and thousands have seen it. Bravo!

Debbie said...

I love making and collecting anything with hexagons! These pieced hexagons are such a great idea. Have a good trip, Bonnie!

What a terrific idea! I'm still just a hexie beginner, but I'm having a great time with my plain ol' one-color ones! I'd love to win this book!

I really like the creative pieced hexagons in Mickey's new book. Your hexagon project has been an inspiration. Thanks for the opportunity. I thoroughly enjoy your blog.

I have been playing with "candied hexies" over the past few months , and love all the varieties that can be achieved. This book takes it to a whole n'other level , and by hook or by crook this book will find it's way to my library

Hi Bonnie! I would LOVE to win this book. I've been wanting to do a hexie quilt for a while now. The pics are SO inspiring. I can't wait to get my book in the mail!

What a great book! I am working on a hexie project as I travel since I started following you on the web. The first project will probably be a people size quilt. This book would be great to see how to implement fabric design into the hexies. Anne

Love, love hexies. This book would be a great inspiration to try something new with hexies. Thanks for including me in this great opportunity.
