Class Overview

Mickey Depre brings a new twist to a traditional technique in Pieced Hexies: Beyond English Paper Piecing. Learn how Mickey pieces small squares, which are then applied to a paper hexagon template. In addition to the patterns taught in class, you'll receive three bonus designs (a $12 value) FREE: Mickey's hexie design "Sparkle," the exclusive "Craftsy Star," and a brand new quilt pattern called "Shimmer Star" that will incorporate your newly-acquired hexie skills!

Creating pieced hexies is a mix of machine and hand sewing. Start them in your sewing room and bring them with you to the couch, vacation, or your long wait at the Department of Motor Vehicles. Arrange multiple hexies in a variety of ways to create stunning results with the same pieced hexie design.
