Let's talk about 2016! And what you should expect from Hexie Love.
1. BLISS! In every issue in 2016, a portion of the pattern will be given with complete instructions. Bliss features curved pieced hexagons and you're going to love making these! The curves add such a dimension to all the straight lines inherent in hexagons.
2. The 2016 Hexagon Block of the Month! Yes, in 2016 the BOM patterns will be within Hexie Love. There will be two patterns in each issue so that at the end of the year you'll have 12 blocks. Why are they in the magazine next year? It will really help me to have all my eggs in one basket, so to speak. The BOM will be called "Folk Art Hexies" and I know you'll love the patterns as much as I do.
3. Featured hexagon quilt artists, scrappy patterns, hexagon products, 'just for fun' patterns, book reviews, product reviews! And more quilts from YOU, the reader! Yes, all your favorites will still be in Hexie Love!
4. PRICE CUT! As my digital magazine journey continues, I've managed over the course of the year to lower my overhead costs. And I'm going to pass along the savings to you! Starting in January, each issue of Hexie Love will only cost $5.00. Spread the word! That's an average of only $2.50 per month for all this hexie goodness (way less than a cup of coffee)!
My shipment of Curved Hexagon Rulers in on the way and will be available on January 1, ready for you to order! Yay!!! The ruler will REALLY help in making the curved hexagons for Bliss.
I've decided that I receive so much love and gratitude and joy from my quilting journey and it's time to give back! And so, beginning in 2016 I'll be donating a portion of the proceeds from Hexie Love, ruler sales, and water soluble hexagon paper sales to St. Judes Children's Research Hospital.
I'm so excited about the future of Hexie Love and I hope you are, too!
