Hexagon Explosion

I've been busy cutting and arranging. I revisited YOKO Japanese Antique and Fabrics shop in South Pasadena that was still there after 5 years. I bought some more vintage fabrics: the red and pink dragonflies, blue crosshatching on white, red/pink flowers on white, and white flowers on navy. I really feel like the design has a balanced look. I still have some half blocks to cut but I'm ready to start hand piecing them together. Next week we are visiting our good friends in Cave Creek Arizona and this will be prefect to take along.

Hi Janet. I'm taking a class next month at one of my local quilt shops to make a quilt similiar to this. Instead of making the hexagons and putting them together, you sew them together row by row. I'm so exicted. I saw it hanging on the wall at the shop, and I HAD to do it. I like how yours turned out.
