Book Review: Hexa-Go-Go by Tacha Bruecher

Hexa-Go-Go: English Paper Piecing * 16 Quilt Projects

I absolutely love the cheery, whimsical style to this book.  Tacha Bruecher does an excellent job giving English paper piecing a modern makeover with her fresh color choices and innovative projects.  For this review, I made her “Go Faster Hexagon Box Bag” project.  The directions were clear, simple, and well-illustrated.  I would have liked a little more instruction on inserting the zipper and securing the lining, but my bag still turned out well.

Her initial instructions on basting and sewing hexagons together are clear enough for the true beginner, but full of tips to help more experienced quilters as well.  True to the Stash books style, the photographs and layout of this book are enticing enough to tempt any quilter to buy the book on looks alone.   The well-written projects will keep quilters coming back to this book for reference and inspiration.  I’m looking forward to starting on her Over the Rainbow quilt soon!

Happy Quilting!

    Too funny, I just got home from the quilt store where I picked up this book. I haven’t had a chance to really look at it but was already planning on making that bag. And I love the Union Jack quilt. A fun book indeed.
