paper hexagon shapes
Fabric tacked around the paper shapes
All 8 hexagons getting ready to put on the background fabric.
Today, I took the shapes and placed them on the background fabric and started to embroider them. I am on my 3rd hexagon and hope to finish embroidering the rest of the hexagons later tonight after work. Then I have to decide if I am going to increase the size of the quilt or if I am going to keep it a smaller lap sized quilt. I need to look more at modern quilting theory and decide how best to add to this quilt. I am hoping to also make a pillow to match so that I can use up some of the smaller patterned fabric most likely using smaller hexagons.
