Here are Glorious Hexagons 221 through 230.
The hexagons in this Judy were cut from a scrap portion of a layer stack. It isn’t a cut that I would have made by choice. I think it worked out rather well, however, paired with the mottled yellow fabric to finish off the block.
The hexagons for this Judy were also cut from a scrap area of a layer stack. I joined them with some diamonds for the central hexagon that would bring in more of the light blue color into the final block. Diamonds with ark swirls on the rust yellow fabric finish off the background allowing the light blue circle to take center stage.
I love the way the Hexagon Thirds work with this Dawn block. I especially like how the cheek and eye nestle in one half of the shape. I also like the way the rust color melts from the central hexagon into the adjoining outer shapes. I also like the white mane circle. Dawn has become one of my favorite blocks, especially using the Hexagon Third shapes for the the center.
I really like using the Doris block to show off the various horse heads in the Large Horse Head fabric. In this block I like the blue circle in the background. I also like the way the horse snouts become a decorative element in the center of the block.
This Doris is similar to the one above. There will be more Doris horse head blocks in the near future.
Here I am back to my favorite block of all Kim with the horse head mane airplane propellor effect taking center stage on this block.
The outer shapes of this Dawn are cut from one of my favorite parts of the Panel Fabric. This block is going to be matched up with two other similar looking blocks in a large hexagon unit.
What is interesting about this Dawn is that I was forced to use triangles to make the central hexagon for the block. I had wanted to use the Hexagon Third shape, but the birds in this fabric are so densely spaced that it was impossible to place the template without overlapping part of a bird.
All the little birdies go, “Tweet, tweet, tweet.” The Marie block is composed of three hexagons and three diamonds. In this Marie the hexagons are made up of two half hexagons facing each other. I was going to make the triangles out of the yellow background of the fabric, but decided instead to use additional birds. The block ends up with a a vacant center and three swarms of birds circling in the thirds of the block.
I had initially planned to face the pieces that make up the thirds of this block in the same direction. Then I got the idea of facing them toward each other with the blue stripe on the outside. I like the result. This block is likely to be used along with the similarly colored Dawn three blocks above.
