Last week didn't offer a lot of sewing time, but I did somehow squeeze in a trip to Fabric Shack for some green leafy background fabrics - priorities people, priorities - LOL! My first idea was to use a large green leafy print between all the hexagons but it was too much. Right now I'm entertaining this design idea.
I will use the large scale green to frame random hexagons. Then I'll use a light green Moda Grunge fabric for the rest of the triangles. And I can use the lighter green to frame the rest of the design. I'm planning on having 9 rows of hexagons resulting in a larger hexagon shaped design. I still have a nice chunk of the fabric I used for the hexagons and I want to use that as the border. I've toyed with the idea of giving this whole quilt a hexagon shape and maybe using it as a table topper. Hmmm... still thinking.
Here's a close up of the large leafy green fabric. Kinda tropical looking.
The Moda Grunge has a touch of rose along with a couple of shades of olive green. I like it a lot.
Now if my math is right... and we all know my issues with basic counting... this quilt will need 58 hexagons. There are 50 that will be pieced and I'm going to add is some whole hexagons like these below to complete the quilt.
Hopefully I will have some sewing time this week, but I'm not sure. I have plans to do some packing and there is a lunch at Cheesecake Factory that can't be missed. LOL - it is all about those priorities!
