Written by Katja Marek, “The New Hexagon” was just released through Martingale Press. Katja Marek takes hexagons, which have been all the rave, a step farther by breaking them down into individual designs within each hexagon block.
One thing I want you to notice in this Table of Contents is that, although there may be a lot of different blocks, Katja has devoted the first 20 pages, or so, to instructions and information all about English Paper Piecing from which kind of paper to use to stitching the pieces together.
Each of the blocks includes a finished hexagon block and a full-size pattern to make your own.
You can go simple and put just a few hexagons into a quilt.
Or you can make a lot of blocks and make them into a larger quilt. Notice in the following quilt the secondary design element created with the 6-pointed stars between the hexagons.
Many thanks to Martingale Press for providing this book for review.
