Hexagons

Hexagons

I have finished the grey hexagons at one end. Just got the other end to do now. I'm not sure how much I like it. I didn't make the blend between the purple, red and yellow subtle enough and so you can sort of see a line where the colours change. I also think I should have looked at the original picture more as the colour is in the centre and the grey all around, but you live and learn. I just want to finish it now so I can move onto the next project!

Hexagons

You can see the different suit material and tweeds. Then I'll be able to think about how I am going to hand quilt it.

I love the yellow and grey! I'd be tempted to take the purple off and do yellow each end and then grey....

I love this, are you following the hexalong on Lily's Quilts.
Your quilt is exactly what I saw in my head when I started. Mine hasn't turned out in a way that I am happy with, so I'm pulling it all apart and starting again. have a look here

Thanks for posting, I now know where I was going wrong.

Thanks Claire
I'm not sure how much I like what I am doing. I expected the colours to merge in a more subtle way but they just came out in strips. I am kind of put off it so I am not going to make it as big as I originally thought. I just want to get it over and done with now!
