I recently did a book review for Ayumi Takahashi's Patchwork, Please! and fell in love with all of the fun projects. I was very pleased to find that this book was one of our options for Gifty Galore this year! Before opening the book again, I already knew I wanted to make the Happy Hexagon Trivets. I had not yet ventured into the world of paper piecing, but was assured by my always encouraging co-workers that I would be able to handle it.

Father’s Day is coming up, and granted, while this may be a little late in the game of making a quilt for dad, using Kit Builder is such an awesome tool to play with. Many people have mentioned that it’s hard to find “guy quilts”, but playing around on Kit Builder makes it fun to play with skus from existing collections and basics that you can choose for yourself in the colors the guy in your life would like.
