I’m nearly done with all the pieces for my hexagon quilt. I just have to make six more hexagon blocks and cut the additional grey triangles I’ll need to fill in all the spaces. And I’ll have to give it some time on the design wall to make sure I like the arrangement.
And even though I ‘m not done, I can’t help but start thinking about my next quilt… and it’s going to be made from scraps from the hexagon quilt I’m working on now.
This one has three hexagons pushed together. I love the way the additional hexagon appears in the center.
I had pieces of strip sets left over so I cut them into triangles and started playing with different arrangements. The one above is very random. No two triangles are the same, and I think this is the approach I’ll take with this next scrappy quilt.
This next block is pieces from two different strip sets. So there are pairs of triangles. I like this arrangement, but I think I prefer the more random look.
Here’s another random hexagon. I’m getting so excited about these blocks that I cut up some of the left over fabric, sewed it into half strip sets and cut the triangles. I have enough now for 15 blocks, and have enough cut to make at least five more blocks, which means I can make a small throw or youth quilt from these scraps.
I’m thinking I might go really bold with the background triangles and use Brandon Mably’s black and white jumble — the black and white in this photo. I’ll have to see how it looks on the design wall, but I’m thinking want to go bold!
I’ll also dig into my stash and see what pieces I have that would work for backing.
