Pieced Hexie—Tumbler with Mickey Depre
Learn how to take the Hexie to a whole new level with pieced Hexies.
Pieced Hexies add magic to English paper piecing. Wrapping a small quilt block around your papers to create a hexie that brings endless creativity to any English Paper Piecing project. The key is marking alignment guides so that each Pieced Hexie lines up. Let me show you how.
Together we will create TUMBLER Pieced Hexies and explore it's many possibilities. 
Students will leave class with their imagination running wild. “Pieced Hexies are a lot like potato chips…you can’t stop at just one. And making them keeps your hands busy and out of the chip bowl…so bonus-bonus!”
Note: Some English Paper Piecing experience would be helpful but not necessary.
