Theme 1: Just for Fun

Here’s a favorite with the quilters in the office! This “Hex Mix Blanket” is die-cutter friendly. Hexies are held in place with simple straight stitching, which also adds lots of texture to the blanket.

Theme 3: Warm Wear

Turn two yards of fleece into this one-size-fits-all “Punched Up Poncho” (modeled by our own acquisitions editor, Karen Burns!). Make it in sport-logo fabric for a game day in the stands, or choose a solid color for casual wear on cooler days.
