Pieced Hexies Craftsy Course Review

Recently Craftsy celebrated 2 million members by having a sale on everything.  I knew straight away what I wanted to enrol in: Pieced Hexies Beyond English Paper Piecing with Mickey Depre.  You can find this quilting Craftsy class here:

I really enjoyed this class.  Mickey Depre is a great teacher and her classes are well structured.  I was surprised at the length of each lesson but I was not disappointed.  Besides there’s not much to learn about English Paper Piecing :).  I learnt a few tips that I did not know when I started my hexie quilt in my teens which is still a WIP that mum took over.  These tips will come in handy for my second attempt at hexies :).

Mickey goes through all the basics for English Paper Piecing in one lesson which is great as I have not done hand sewing in 20+ years.  She goes through how to piece her 2 hexie designs and how to get the designs perfect.

The Craftsy course may not be long time wise compared to other Craftsy courses but when it comes with 2 bonus patterns and with the sale discount I felt it was worth the cost.  I am very happy with the class and glad I took it.

Here is my first project for the class.  I have not sewn them together yet as I wasn’t sure which design I want.  I chose these 3 as I was after a floral design.

I could not decide so I asked hubby and my girls which they liked best.  They all chose the bottom design so I will be hand sewing it tonight.  Looking forward to trying the other design in the Craftsy course and seeing whether I can come up with some of my own :).
