Here are Glorious Hexagons numbers 71 through 80.
This Kim is cut from the border of the panel fabric. I cut these pieces from a six layer stack. Therefore, there are two Kim blocks like this in my collection. The same is true for the Kim blocks that immediately follow which were all cut from the panel fabric.
This Kim is cut from the second section of the panel fabric.
This Kim is also cut from the second section of the panel fabric.
The second section of the panel fabric once again is featured in this Kim.
This Carol is also made from the second section of the panel fabric.
This Judy is made from the second portion of the panel fabric. I am on a roll with that stack. The central hexagon has been pieced from three diamonds. Notice the horse ears in the six hexagons that make up the bulk of the block. The green diamonds that make up the outer shapes were cut from the background section of the panel. They were chosen to visually extend the green portion of the hexagons.
This Judy uses the second portion of the panel fabric for six of the hexagons that make up the block. The central hexagon is made of diamonds cut from the background of the bird fabric with birds placed on a yellow background. The outer diamonds also come from that bird fabric.
This Doris is cut from the border of the second section of the panel fabric. It has a mechanical look to it. I am not entirely happy with the way the pieces aligned in the center. The white dots are not exactly placed. This may have come about through a slight misalignment of the fabric in the stack. This hexagon may make its way onto a reject pile to be used in the making of small projects to test various sashing methods. I am also considering an assembly of abstract blocks as a separate project.
This Doris is also cut from the border of the second section of the panel fabric. It also is very mechanical in feel. It is a bit more wonky than the previous block due to the angled placement of the template during cutting.
This Kerry was also cut from the second section of the panel fabric. This is one of my favorite blocks. I like the way that the hue of the background of the bird pieces nearly matches the central diamond fabric. this allows the two shapes to meld together. It also creates a central shape that is different from a hexagon.
All of the blocks in this post are derived from the second section of the panel fabric. Therefore, I decided to post that section here. See if you can find the individual cuts that make up the hexagons.
I am considering a small wall hanging composed entirely of hexagons from the panel fabric. I might place a panel on the back of of that piece.
The next ten Glorious Hexagons are coming very soon.
