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!

  150. Wow, that makes plain hexies seem so tame! I'd love to win (as would we all). It would be a good project to keep me occupied as I recover from my first marathon, which I'll be running in 8 days. Thanks for the chance to win!

  160. What an awesome idea! I am working on the Insanity quilt now and have become totally addicted to hexies (a good thing, since there are about 11,000 of them in the project). I would have never thought to piece hexies - looks like a great book!

    Oh my, what a fabulous concept! I love making hexies. I call them hexie chips - they are like potato chips, you just can't make one! Would love to win this book so I can learn another wonderful technique and another way to use my scraps.

    Unlike most of the posters, I've had no desire to make a hexagon quilt. Until now. What a great twist on a classic. Thank you and Mickey for a chance at winning this book.

    I'm always interested in learning new ways of making traditional patterns. Sounds so exciting although I have loved making my hexies by hand, sort of a hand piecing technique that my beloved grandmother taught me years ago. Wishing your friend the best with her new book.

    Oh my goodness that looks great. I would love to try this challenge . It truly gives the little hexes a whole new look. I am working a small project of them now. It's my travel project for hospital. I seem to spend a lot of time there. Thanks Bonnie for giving of your time and talents. You are a true giver and inspire me to step out of my comfort zone to try new things .

  180. 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.

  183. 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!

  191. 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
