Love this design and colors. Do you have a pattern for it?
Sorry, there isn't a pattern as I just made it up as I went along! For each hexagon, I sewed strips of fabric into 2.5" strips ( eg. you can sew 2 dfferent 1.5" wide strips together to yield a 2.5" strip). Then cut them into 60 degree triangles with a 60 degree ruler. I then just rotated 6 triangles (vary the orientations to give a different look) to then sew into a hexagon. Tip: sew 2 groups of 3 triangles (i.e. sew two halves of a hexagon first), then join the two halves into a whole hexagon. The spaces between the hexagons are just quilter's muslin cut into triangles. Hope that makes sense. I just made as many as I needed to make the quilt, framed by sashings on all sides. Let me know if you need further clarification!
WOW I found hexagons a real chore and not likely to appear in any of my quilts any time soon. I applaud your sucess. Nice colors too.
Thanks for the kind compliments!
I just bought a 60 degree triangle ruler this week.
Happy sewing and experimenting!
