Fat Quarterly e-zine cofounder and quilt blogger Bruecher introduces contemporary quilters to the classic art of English paper piecing in this collection, which focuses on paper-pieced designs made with hexagons. The projects, which range from a beginner-friendly, seven-hexagon needle case to a king-sized bedspread that uses 1,666 pieced hexagons, implement fabric choices to make an old technique fresh and modern. Hexagon templates, as well as easy-to-follow basic directions for paper piercing, are included. VERDICT The modern quilt movement is at its best when it finds creative ways to make classic techniques fit in with modern tastes. Bruecher has done just that with this collection of patterns, and a new generation of quilters will benefit from her expertise. --Nanette Donohue; Library Journal, 06/26/2012

They are varied and groped into the following categories: rosette, diamonds, stars, blocks and free form. The box bag had caught my eye and could very well be my first small project. Or it could be something for Christmas. Or perhaps the Argyle quilt.......
I have not made any of the quilts as yet, so the reason for four stars, but the instructions firstly detail the number of hexagons required and then expand on how to quickly achieve this number. Really useful.
