More Hexagons!

It's been a long time since my last post. Work has been taking up alot of my time lately. We have had to start picking up the big ground pile out west since part of the tarp had blown off and some of that grain has been trucked to the elevator I am at to be stored. When things don't happen within a planned time frame then getting creative is a must. We are good at getting creative. I have been working on my hexagons lately, since I can carry them around, and below are pictures of the two I just finished this morning before coming to work.


Looking at these pictures, I like the dark fabric on the outside row much better the the lighter. I never noticed it before. I will have to adjust my fabric choices accordingly.

Have a quilty day!

I'm assuming you are using the English paper piecing (paper on the inside)? I have a small pile of pieced hexes in the closet ... Hmmm, I wonder how deeply they are buried. LOL

Oh I love how the fabric design on the red fabric with the dark outside lines up! Very cool!

Not to murky up the waters too much, but I really like BOTH blocks...could you use both in your quilt layout design?

Jean said...

Those are so pretty..you are getting a lot of these finished! I love how the lines line up.

Won't the darks come up against the lighter ones when all put together anyway? I like both blocks and all the others before them.
