Post for Susan Canadian Abroad!

Susan was wondering in my comment box recently how I was going to use this gorgeous fabric in my hexalong quilt

The fabric is designed by Kaffe Fassett and I think Susan pointed it out to me so I duly bought it at the Cotton Patch stand at FoQ.

The flowers were not quite big enough or far apart enough to be a simple block on it's own

or I would have had to sacrifice too many others and I like my fabric to go as far as it can so what could I do?

Look in Marti Michell's Six is for Hexagons book of course and seek inspiration - this is what Marti and I came up with...

Hope you like it Susan!?   Have to say this one is very bright using one of the solids I bought for my little house blocks...might need to tone it down a little in future.


  1. It looks lovely! I love how different the central fabric looks once it's surrounded by the border! Looking forward to seeing more!

  2. Tone it down! Why? I love colour, but you already know that. I think your hexie looks wonderful. More please.

  3. Whoa sister! Don't tone it down...you are doing great! Susan and I both LOVE it! This is a great fabric!

  4. So love these colors! Nice & bright!
