Playing With Hexagons

I bought this half yard left on the bolt by the customer ahead of me at JoAnn's in early December.

 My thought was that it would make nice thin strips to transition between design elements. Instead, it's become the star (literally) to my playing with this online project, "Soupcon Quilt Along" created by Karen on her blog, Faeries and Fibres.  Here's my solution to the first step in making my version of her the wall hanging she's designed...
However, I couldn't resist playing with different configurations of the hexagon to make more medallions...



Here's the fabric from which I'm cutting the centers...

I'm intrigued and couldn't resist playing with more configurations...


I'm excited to see where Karen is leading me and the 28 others who are in on this project. It's not too late for you to come join the fun, too. Just go to her blog and leave a comment indicating that you're interested.

Hi Nellie and thank you for the plug for my free QAL! I would love it if others wanted to join in and have some fun! I can`t believe how many blocks you`ve made! Each is more beautiful than the next! I`ve just about got Part 2 finished so it will be up first think Friday morning! I can`t wait to see what you do with what I have planned!

Isn't that fun? I discovered Bethany Rynolds "Stack and Whack" some time ago and got addicted to making hexagons. Enjoy.
