Mega half hexagons quilt – video tutorial

I used the beautiful new Zen Garden collection by Michael Miller:

How to make hexagon quilts with fabric stripes

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
