I'm SO excited to announce that my "secret project" as of late is developing a new quilt magazine, one that caters to all of us HEXIE lovers!

It's been so much fun bringing HexieLove to life! Here are some things about HexieLove you might want to know:

HexieLove is NOT about hexies made from circles. It's about ALL KINDS of hexies, whether they are EPP, Hickory Nuts, Inklingo, Lucy Boston, stamped, pieced with Y-seams - any kind of hexagon is fair game!

HexieLove will be digital only. You'll be able to read it on your computer, iPad, E-reader, phone, etc.

HexieLove's first issue will be out in January, 2015.

HexieLove will be available for subscriptions in a matter of weeks.

HexieLove will have 6 issues per years.

HexieLove will include:

Featured Artists
The Modern Hexie
Technique Tips

Put a Hexie on it! (Small projects such as pillows, bags, etc.)
Talk Hexie to me…(Tell me what you think of each issue."

  17. so happy to hear about the magazine, but a suggestion: could you change the the color of the print on this website? it is very difficult to read turquoise font against the dark peach background.
