Hexagons continue to heat up the quilting world, so we've given you two hexie projects in this issue - Pillows with Panache by Helen Stubbings and Hexometry by Sarah Thomas. Our cover quilt, Lemon Drops, by Pam Gillespie makes you want to grab a glass of lemonade and chill. Kat Jones, Best of Show winner at QuiltCon 2017, shows us her technique for bias-tape appliqué in Bubbles, Donna Lynn Thomas continues her Quilting Fundamentals column with guidance on sewing four-patch units, half-square triangles, and quarter-square triangles, and we're also covering a trend we see emerging in modern quilting: batiks. You'll see them used in this issue in Setting Sail by Denise Russell and Sunshine by Connie Campbell, as well as highlighted in our fabric spread. Go ahead, dive into all the cool stuff waiting for you in Issue #19!
