Fat Quarterly e-zine cofounder and quilt blogger Bruecher introduces contemporary quilters to the classic art of English paper piecing in this collection, which focuses on paper-pieced designs made with hexagons. The projects, which range from a beginner-friendly, seven-hexagon needle case to a king-sized bedspread that uses 1,666 pieced hexagons, implement fabric choices to make an old technique fresh and modern. Hexagon templates, as well as easy-to-follow basic directions for paper piercing, are included. VERDICT The modern quilt movement is at its best when it finds creative ways to make classic techniques fit in with modern tastes. Bruecher has done just that with this collection of patterns, and a new generation of quilters will benefit from her expertise. --Nanette Donohue; Library Journal, 06/26/2012About the Author:
