Giveaway! Recycled Hexie Quilts
I know how you all love your giveaways and I have a great one for you courtesy of Schiffer Publishing. The latest item up for grabs is a copy of “Recycled Hexie Quilts: Using Vintage Hexagons in Today’s Quilts” by Mary W. Kerr.
The book is filled with ideas for finishing and repurposing this very popular pattern from the 1930s that is gaining popularity again. Plus it isn’t available for sale until April, so you’re really getting the scoop if you win. Here’s the description from Schiffer Publishing:
More than 140 color images, with both traditional and contemporary designs, show how vintage hexagon textile fragments can be repurposed and fashioned into new, beautiful quilts. Over the last century, hundreds of hexagon (fondly termed “hexie”) patterns were published and thousands of quilts were started—yet many of these textiles were never finished. Other quilts were damaged from overuse and neglect. This book shows fifty-two new quilts inspired by these neglected hexagon textiles. See how this basic shape can be employed in a wide variety of combinations and patterns, both traditional and modern. Packed with ideas and tips, this practical yet art-filled guide will inspire quilters to try new designs by drawing on the power of hexies from the past.
To enter, leave a comment below telling me if you’ve started a hexie quilt and if you actually finished it, or if you just have a few paper pieced blocks strung together. I’m guilt of the latter. You have until Friday, March 13 to enter. Good luck!
