The latest American release from Japanese craft publisher Boutique-Sha features hand-pieced hexagon projects in an array of vintage-style floral prints. Both English paper piecing and traditional hand-piecing techniques are introduced, followed by a series of small projects, including bags, pouches, place mats, and coasters. Each project contains a step-by-step overview of the construction as well as layout diagrams and full-size templates for cutting the hexagons. The largest project in the collection is a miniquilt, making these designs a low-commitment way to experiment with hand piecing.
VERDICT Handwork is increasing in popularity among quilters, and these small, portable projects will appeal to quilters interested in getting in on this trend.
