Next Hex...


I'm still working on my Hexagon Quilt...which is a very eclectic mix of motifs and seams. I'm adding a wee bit of lace in butterflies, dragonflies, and small motifs...but almost no trims or seam lace.
There is no "theme" to the quilt, the colors in the fabrics are what really ties the quilt together. My "goal" is to add a motif to almost every patch and a seam to almost every seam.
So, the blocks are full...but not what I would call encrusted.
I'm really enjoying finding different motifs for the patches. And while most are designed for thread embroidery, I'm choosing to do some as ribbon embroidery instead.
Here are some closeups for you.




Hugs to all!

I'm loving all your crazy hexagons, Kathy! I always wanted to make a hexagon crazy quilt, but it's on a long list. :) BTW, your stitching is so precise. I enjoy the closeups.
