Hexagreens is an original design and it is made up of large hexagons that have been deconstructed and reconstructed to create some interesting designs. I wrote a little tutorial about constructing, deconstructing and reconstructing a hexagon. You can find it here.
If you start with a hexagon, in this case it was a large hexagon, it can be divided into three diamonds.
Fussy cutting those diamonds will create interesting effects!
That same large hexagon can also be divided into twelve diamonds, six of which make a star and the remaining six fill in the edges.
In this block the fussy cuts were used for the outer diamonds. It gives the hexagon a different look!
I used these techniques to construct many of the hexagons in Hexagreens. Some of the large hexagons in this quilt were leftovers from another quilt (Mom's Flower Bed).
I'll share more pictures of this quilt in the coming days an I'll also explain some of the techniques I used to construct this quilt. For now I'm off for more fun with friends. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to get back to quilting. Until then, happy sewing!
