Here are the next five Glorious Hexagons.
This is one of my least favorite block designs for the direction in which I want to take my quilt. In the first month or two I felt compelled to make every block presented to me, and so I made Victoria, and I made her more than once. Liza Lucy, one of the creators of the Glorious Hexagon project did a post about how she uses scraps to create her Victoria blocks. That idea is very impressive, and if I were doing a quilt with KFC (Kaffe Fasset Collection) fabrics it would be a great way to use up odd pieces of fabric. I do eventually hope to do a KFC Glorious Hexagon quilt, so I will keep that little trick in mind for when I do.
For this Victoria I tried to create a more dimensional look with light, medium, and dark horses to create a block that appears to be illuminated from the upper left.
Jacqui blocks are like Judy blocks except that the hexagons are divided in half to create half hexagon shapes. Rather than pairing two different cuts of fabric together to create the pieced hexagons I chose to invert pairs of the same cut and invert one side so they fit together. I think it makes an interesting effect.
In this Jacqui two different different cuts are pairs together to create the hexagons. Additionally, the hexagons are turned so the section of blue and white horse mane creates an echo of the blue and white section of horse mane that appear in the outter diamonds. The central hexagon is once again pieced from diamonds.
Marie is a block composed of large shapes. There are only six pieces in this block. Each shape is repeated only three times, so this is a good block to create from a three layer stack. The manes of the horses in the hexagons match up with the manes of the horses in the diamonds. This is by design.
