Here are the next five Glorious Hexagons.
This Kelly was make using the large horse head print for the central pieces. The outer pieces were cut from the panel fabric. There is a section of the panel fabric along the bottom that is composed of gold script on a brown patterned background. I wasn’t sure about using the script in this project, but decided to give it a try with this block.
Here we see the gold script combined with the jumping horses fabric which also features a brown background pattern. I like the way that the two patterned backgrounds blend together so make the transition from one shape to the next more subtle.
This Sharon was cut entirely from the running horses fabric. I have seen that fabric also referred to as stampeding horses. This is one of my favorite blocks so far. I really like the way that the yellow horse heads grow out of the brown horse heads.
This Sharon was cut entirely from the jumping horses fabric. I chose the lightest horse for the central pieces and the darkest horse for the outer pieces.
This Carol is cut from the panel fabric. The panel fabric has a lot of potential for creating blocks with a geometric emphasis.
