I am unbelievably incredibly pleased with how this turned out! For some reason I was doubting that those little hexies would actually come together like I was envisioning them in my head the entire time I was putting them together, but they pieced together seamlessly. The entire top is machine pieced, and I used the method described here to piece together the hexies.
Hopefully my DQS 11 partner is just as thrilled with this as I am! The top measures approximately 17" square, and the hexie center measures approximately 11" square. I don't think I repeated a solid "ring", or fabric, and there are 16 different Kona solid colors represented. The borders are Kona white and Robert Kaufman quilters linen in Grey.
I'm mulling over how to quilt this, and I'm sort of at a loss. I am typically not a huge fan of stitching in the ditch, as I like the quilting to add something to the quilt design...but because this top is so so busy, I'm thinking that may be the route I take. Possibly some hand quilting around those borders. I'm going to leave this on my design wall for a few days, and see what comes to mind. More on this soon!
I will be linking this post up to Sew Modern Monday over at Canoe Ridge Creations stop over and check out what everyone is up to!
