Emily’s Adventures in Hexagons Giveaway!

Adventures in Hexagons by Emily Breclaw

Congratulations to Emily Breclaw on her new book, Adventures in Hexagons!

I was excited to be invited to participate in her blog tour introducing her designs. (This blog tour has been completed.)

PLEASE NOTE  Inklingo is mentioned on the cover (Thank you!) and Emily’s book is full of designs that could be made with Inklingo. However, there are no instructions for printing, sewing, or pressing with Inklingo or with freezer paper templates. The good news is that Inklingo provides all that.


If you are new to Inklingo, please watch the video and visit the Welcome to Inklingo page on the website. It will help you get started printing on fabric.

Print on fabric

Printing the shapes on fabric (or freezer paper) with Inklingo makes it easy to make all of Emily’s star-inspired designs! (It is the same for hexagons, kites, diamonds, triangles, and ANY OTHER SHAPES—in any book.)

Inklingo shapes are named with the finished size to make it easy. You can look them up in the Inklingo Index of Shapes under the Support & Goodies tab on the website.

Inklingo shape collections

For example, some of Emily’s designs use  3 inch hexagons and related shapes and they are all provided in one “shape collection” with all of the info you need for determining yardage requirements, sewing, and pressing.

Some of Emily’s designs use kites and diamonds, which are available on the Main 60 Shape Page in the Shop.


More good news! Emily’s beautiful designs use shapes that are large enough to sew comfortably by machine. That makes the quilts appealing to quilters who don’t do hand piecing too.

With the lines printed on the fabric, it is easy to sew from crosshair to crosshair by machine or by hand. Your choice.

As usual, you can use Inklingo for English Paper Piecing, if that is the method you prefer.

There are more videos on the website, including the Main Hexagon Page.

Independence Day by Emily Breclaw

When you have the shapes printed on fabric, you don’t need templates!

There are a few shapes in a couple of the quilts that are not Inklingo-able. We always prefer to print the shapes on fabric, of course, but when you can’t, I think you will love using Inklingo to print freezer paper templates without seam allowances.

Freezer paper templates are perfect for fussy cutting too

Emily also invited another Inklingo quilter, Cathi at Quilt Obsession, to the blog tour.

If you don’t win, you can buy the book from Emily! It is also available on Amazon but it is especially nice to support a first-time author, don’t you think?

Thank you for visiting. Good luck in the draw!

  1. Love Inklingo! I work mainly with 90 degree hexies (POTC) a using Inklingo but would love to do more regular hexie work. Thank you for this offer.

  2. The winners!
    The book from C & T – Mary Jarvis, who wrote, “Would love to have this book I find sewing hexies so relaxing but I need new ideas”
    $25 Gift Certificate – Rosalind Gutierrez, who wrote, “Inklingo is a perfect companion to the Hexagon book. Thanks for the opportunity.”

    Congratulations, and thank you to everyone who left a comment!

  3. I am very interested in the new information about Hexagons. All I have ever heard is about hand piecing them. In addition you would have to trace around a template and cut them out individually. I am just begining to use INKLINGO, but expect to change to using this method as almost the only way I make my pieces for quilts. The book sounds exceptionally interesting. I would REALLY LIKE TO WIN!!

  4. I’ve tried the hexagon prints on fabric and it works great. I’m a beginner sewer so I need all the help I can get. I have crocheted a queen-sized hexagon quilt and now I want to see if I can make a matching fabric one. Thanks for all your instructions and encouragement.

  5. The more I see, the more I like!! I am very interested in your product, and want to learn more. Glad I found you through this hop!

  6. Linda this is exciting. I’m working the inklingo 0.5″ hexagons and having a great time. They are moving along quickly.

  7. Have Emily’s book & I can’t WAIT to try Inklingo with her patterns! Thanks for showing how easy this will be. And I LOVE your Ribbon Flower pattern!!! Thanks for sharing!

  8. I just started using Inklingo. Had a little problem loading software, due to not reading through the instructions first. Very important. Now I have printed out 1 Rose Ribbon and I’m hooked. Love this and asking why didn’t someone think of this sooner. Takes quilting to the next level .Thank You Linda !

  9. I Love this site. Your ideas are so wonderful! I feel like anyone can do this method. The patterns are gorgeous. I like to match up the shapes to create a new design.

  10. I would love to participate….sounds like a great book to have as I am experienced at sewing but new to quilting and paper piecing. Thanks for the opportunity!

  11. Lovely looking Book … great that it works with Inklingo too … love the idea of eye-candy … I love Hexies. Thank you for the contest

  12. I have been intrigued by Inklingo for some time. The book looks great. Either prize would be great! Thanks so much for the giveaway.

  13. Love hexes. Looking forward to a new book with variations of piecing for hexes. Love to have work to take with me to do by hand and also the option for machine piecing. Hope I’m a lucky winner. Currently working on the inklingo ribbon block. Good luck to all entries.

  14. Have recently discovered EPP and have fallen in love with hexies. They are addictive and now I have found inklingo.

  15. I would really like to have this book in my collection. I have made a huge amount of hexies and stitched them all together on tonal white background for an eye popping effect. One kingsize quilt on the go. Still need a lot more blocks, I am guessing
    I have purchased the Inklingo Handbook and learning by reading everything before I get started. I’m always a bit less confident when trying something new. Hence why I haven’t printed anything just yet.
    Thank you for all of your fantastic ideas. Looking forward to doing Cleopatra’s Fan and the Ribbon block.

  16. Bellissimo Giveaway e bellissimo il libro!
    Faccio lavori con gli esagoni quando voglio rilassarmi, mi piacciono molto le molteplici possibilità di composizione!
    Grazie per il magnifico lavoro che fate!

  17. I love hexies. I have your orig. Hexie CD and love it. Thank you for all the ideas you come up with and share with us. I would love to win the book for even more hexie ideas.

  18. I have just discovered Inklingo within the past 2 days. I’m still reading everything I can before I actually get started. I’m so excited I can’t wait to try piecing this way. I love sewing on the machine & quilts so I think this is going to be awesome once I learn what to do.

  19. What a wonderful offer. Hexigon designs and inklingo all in one. Best thing is with inklingo we can make these beauties in multiple sizes.
    Thank you Emily and Linda for this opportunity.
