Hexa Go-Go Blog Tour


Thanks for stopping by the Jolly Jabber for the Hexa Go-Go Blog Tour! Hexagons are everywhere, and Tacha Bruecher is definitely contributing to this hexagon madness! Her new book, Hexa Go-Go is a well made manual for all things hexi, and is a great guide for English paper piecing. Her instructions are very clear and detailed, so even the most novice of English paper piecers will be able to sew their way through this book.


Tacha's use of color is extraordinary. Every page is filled with vibrant colors, bold prints and inspiring color combinations. The introduction even includes little tips and tricks to forming a great color palette.


My favorite project in this book has to be the Sunday Brunch Place Mat. Having brunch on this place mat sounds like a dreamy Sunday to me. I'll have eggs, please!


Lucky for you Jolly Jabber readers, we are having a little giveaway today! Leave a comment below for a chance to win a copy of Hexa Go-Go and a winner will be chosen one week from today.

And finally, don't forget to follow along to the last three stops! Visit Fat Quarterly for the rest of the blog tour dates!
