SUMMARY- I admit I would be a bit daunted about putting together an entire quilt of hexagons, but she gives you very detailed instructions that I could follow just fine. She gives you everything you need to design a quilt using hexagrams - it's not just a project book, but goes into design, which I think makes it a serious book to collect for a designer's library. Creating your own designs is that step up that most dedicated quilters aspire to, I think. This is definitely worth pursuing.
