Back to Hexagons

I finished putting all the hexagons together!

I thought this layout was too jumbled, too hard to see the individual blocks.

This is an idea of how they would look with spaces. I thought this was better.

This is what it could look like with the addition of coordinating red fabric. I tried downloading the fabric swatches from Moda to EQ6 - and I managed to figure it out!! Always good to learn something new!!
This layout would make a nice little lap quilt. I think this is the best idea for the hexagons - just have to buy some red fabric. Another trip to the quilt store!

I finally finished this little free motion painted postcard. Decided just to serge the edges since the zig-zag didn't work and it was too small to bind.

I am glad I took this picture yesterday, because when I saw the nest today it was empty! Hopefully they were big enough to fly, they seemed so small (only two, I don't know what happened to the other one?).

Have a great day and thanks for visiting!!

If they flew today, chances are the other one flew yesterday. They often are split up by a day or two in their learning to fly.

I like the hexie quilt with the red.

Joanne, I really love your hexies with that red....that is going to be an awesome-looking quilt!

Aren't baby birds the sweetest? They look pretty small, but then robins fledge pretty quickly, so hopefully that's what they did and nothing bad happened to them!

XOXO,

Cyndi

The red is a terrific addition. I can't wait to see it finished.

I really like the new layout for your hexagons. It's going to look fantastic. Love the free motion postcard too. I need to go start practicing ...
