Ahhhh 20--Blue Birds

This Hexagon pattern was published by Hall in 1935. If you just use two colors, the star is completely lost--so beware you star lovers. It will be interesting to see what you came up with. There is a flikr account flashing on the side bar for those of you that are new to the blog and want to see some past Ahhhh's other than my own.

 I worked on my Ahhhh of and on all week, got it almost done and hated it. Didn't even want to finish it. I am now out of the bright African prints (although I've got several African hexis ready to make from past ahhhh designs that I'll show as I finish them). I have the darker African prints but I am ready to step away and do something bright and flowery or something. So, I've not got a finish to show you now but I'll get one to show you eventually. You'll have to just work from drawings today :)

I agree, nothing beats graph paper a 6-inch ruler and a bunch of pencils. Looking good!

I am feeling a bit dumb. I need to see the finished one as I am having a bit of trouble working this one out. Maybe if I draw it I will manage.Do the feathers only go on the three points not all around??? Help.
