Hexagon Quilt Layout

I’ve been thinking about how I’m going to lay out the blocks in my new hexagon quilt. I’m going to use variations of grey Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics for the background triangles.

There are a couple of these fabrics that I’m not sure about. I’m going to have to cut triangles and get them on the design wall with the bright colored blocks to make the decision.

The photo below shows how the blocks will be laid out. The grey triangles will make subtle star patterns throughout the quilt. I had to draw it all out to make sure that it would work in reality the way it worked in my head.

The whole thing will have to be laid out on the design wall, and then I’ll sew the triangles to the blocks in diagonal rows and then sew the rows together.

I also just made the decision to order six yards of the tangerine Paisley Jungle for the backing. It makes me so incredibly happy!

That fabric just  gives me chills it’s so good!

Going to head to the sewing room right now and see if I can sew eight blocks before I have to go to bed.
