HEXAGONS ANYONE?

As if one hex-a-long wasn't enough, I decided to join another.  Katy, from I'm a Ginger Monkey, decided to turn her amazing hexagon quilt into a quilt-a-long.  I'm a bit of an addict, so I thought, "What's one more? "

Here are some of my fabric choices along with a picture of the quilt layout. I love the colour choices, so am following that pretty close.


I will be digging through my stash today to see what else I can use.  Love. my. stash.


The hexagons are 1 1/2". I've never made them that big, but probably every size smaller. This should work up pretty quick don't you think?



Pure eye candy.

The fabric requirements are here if you care to join in.
Happy stitching.

I'm getting addicted to Enlish pp, have done a few flowers so far and a few pentagon balls, working on a ball from octagons and triangles

I don't know that I'm ready for a whole quilt yet, but my last Zakka Along project definitely gave me the itch to try hexies again. These look beautiful...love your stack!
