Polo Fruity Hexagons!

The bright hexagons have been zigzagged on the machine together!  And now I have to decide what is to go in the centre as at the moment my quilt is full of holes!  




Just like a whole lot of Polo Fruits!














The options I was considering were


1  All one colour throughout the quilt
2  A fabric from each individual hexagon 
3  A contrast fabric from the quilt but not in that specific hexagon 



I had some very helpful comments and some ideas I had not thought of so I had to test them all out.  Thank you all you creative people even if I am not going with your suggestion I appreciate your time and thought!  


I placed some of my Kona solids under the quilt top to see what I liked best and these are my favourites















Well I like them all with some of the hexagons so I am leaning towards option three after all.  I will actually cut out some dotty fabrics next as the centres to see if this will work.  I will report back!


As for the Delft Dreams quilt - again thanks for your input and I will go ahead without a border - haven't tried that before so it will be fun to try something new!

  3. Love the fruity polos! I'm always amazed by how different blocks look once they're joined together - even when you don't think the seam allowances are distracting your eye their 'disappearance' makes such a difference! Looking forward to the next installment!

  8. Wow again SS. I go away for a few days and look what you get up to. I think you are doing very well and don't really need lots of advice. You are making great choices. Love the hexagons, have tried that whirlygig type hexagon and had big plans to make a huge quilt with that one but made only one block and I love to draft patterns. I am useless at maths so don't know how that one works. Delft Dreams is so beautiful and I shall have it in mind to make me get mine out of its dark place one day. Phew! Have I missed anything out?!!

  15. What a neat quilt!!! I just adore your design and all the different fabrics you used. I like the third color (blue) a lot. Really pulls all the flowers together.
