This is very impressive for your first shot at hexagon quilting! I love the interesting color effects.I too just made my first hexagon quilt but it's very small, and I used the machine. Malke Dubrawsky has a great article on machine hexagon piecing in Quilt Scene if you need some guidance. I followed her technique and it was really helpful.
Inspiring! I have paper pieced hexagons (actually quite a few) but I never seem to do anything with them! They are quite peaceful and satisfying to make.
Second break and I'm still looking at your quilts. Many thanks.
I know this is years later, but I saw where you mentioned in a different post that you got this quilt idea from a book. Did the book have a template or pattern with it. I've never done a quilt like this, but want to make one for my mother. Thanks!!
