Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts, REALLY....and a Giveaway too!

Welcome to the Quick & Easy Hexie Quilts Blog Hop :)

You may be thinking....quick and easy....where have I heard that before?  It is true, I'm here to tell you.....it is possible to turn a circle into a hexagon and you won't have to use a paper template.  How do I know?

I have recently reviewed a copy of Dr. Peggy Rhodes and Julia Wood's new book, Quick & Easy Hexie Quilts and I've made my own hexagons (shown above on top of the book).  These hexies are much larger than the hexagons I've been making for the past 8 years.  Mine are approximately  3/4" across and I've been using paper to stabilize my work.  I have to say, I really have enjoyed making the larger hexagons without paper using Dr. Rhodes and Julia Wood's method.

The "Florabunda Table Topper" is one of my favorite patterns from Quick & Easy Hexie Quilts.  Will ya just look at all those beautiful colors......they are beautiful!  Light, dark, print, dots, stripe, solid or floral....all of them make incredibly beautiful Hexie Quilts.

Would you like to make Quick and Easy Hexies too?  For your chance to win your very own copy of Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts please leave a comment on this post telling me what you love about hexagons. 
 
The winner from the IHAN blog will also receive 50 pre-cut circles.....oh just think of the fun you will have!

There are several chances to win a copy of Quick & Easy Hexie Quilts.  Visit each of the blogs below and leave a comment to increase your chances of winning.  One winner from each blog will be chosen on June 10th, 2013 to receive a copy of Quick & Easy Hexie Quilts.  Be sure to visit Julia Wood's blogs (see links below) before June 10 for a chance to win an Accuquilt Go Baby fabric cutter as well.
