|(I forgot to take a photo of the finished quilt! Oops. But it is finished, and in use on our sofa in Savannah)|
This time out, I am using smaller hexagons, that measure one inch on each side.
I really liked the shape, so I decided to try a bigger project using the diamond, this time using some of my favorite bright colored fabrics. There are some solids, and some black and white prints as well.
I don't bother cutting the fabrics into hexagons, I just use squares. For this size of hexagon (one inch sides), I use a 2-1/2" square of fabric.
They are really nice to work with on a snowy day in Saskatchewan. I realized that the brightest window in our house is in the dining room, so I dragged an easy chair in there so I can work on them in the light.
