Rosette Needle Book

I was so excited when I finally got my hexa go-go book at the end of August. I have to say I love almost all the projects in this beautiful book by Tasha Bruecher. I am wanting to make the quilt on the cover. It is so beautiful. She does an awesome job on teaching you different methods and how to do the paper piecing. I am glad I bought this book it is a perfect addition to my craft book library!

Since I am new to paper piecing I decided to start off small and make the needle book. Since the hexagons are only 1/2 inch in each side I was only needing 1 1/2 inch squares which means I was able to use some of the little scraps of my beloved Lila Tueller Santorini. The binding was fabric I bought when I was a teenager, lol. The instructions were straight forward and easy to follow. I like that there is a pocket in the inside if you need to travel with some thread and teeny scissors. The only thing I changed was I did a hand crochet loop for the button loop in gold. I love the vintage button I found in the button box too :) I can’t wait to find the perfect fabrics to embark on my hexy quilt. Trust me if you buy this book you will love it!

So cute! I've been wondering about this book... haven't picked up a copy yet, but it will probably make my Christmas list. ;)
