I’m waiting for backing fabric to arrive so I can quilt Soho Sunflowers and I’m almost finished with my Obituary Quilt. I thought I would share some tidbits about Hexagon Quilts. The first hexagon quilt below I named “Koi in a Blender” I made for Alex in 2006, I made the second “Jumping for Joy” out of the same fabric in 2008. What I found interesting is how different they came out. I made the third “Route 66” in 2006 and again in 2007 for a friend of mine. Again they came out so different.
I taught a hexagon quilt class where two students with the same fabric worked next to each other and their quilts came out completely different. I guess it depends where your repeat starts and what your vision is.
