Artistic, Hexotic, Hop-A-Long, Hex-a-long, Hillbilly, Hectic Hexies
This new size meant that I wanted to start from scratch with my ideas of what type of quilt to make. The rainbow quilt was fun, but using the plain fabrics was no fun without fussy cuts. So, I looked through my fabric, and fell in love all over again with my African and Asian fabrics. Of course these are completely opposite. I went with African first. I have some really wild ones. Be watching for some wild, crazy Hexagons coming your way!
For your Ahhhh number 5, this is probably the easiest hexagon we will do. But it is the base design that we will be using for quite a few weeks. So get really used to drawing this:
It looks like pie slices so I am just calling it the "Sliced Hexagon".
It's great for playing around with fussy cut stripes.
Here is the first of my On the Wild Side African hexagons:
It's not lined up perfectly.
If you look close, you'll notice the lines are wavy.
So when I tried to line them up, I really shouldn't have, because there is no way they would.
For example..look at the blue ones closest to the dots.
They are really wide on one end and narrow on the other.
Then if you look at the pink above the blue they are the same.
Wider at one end than the other.
Silly me, those won't line up!
Well, no matter. It is wild and I love it!
