    in the middle of the night

    I had this brain freeze and I got up and cut this out . I have no idea how I'm going to
    put it together into a quilt. I should have stayed in bed. If it actually becomes a
    quilt I'm going to call it Roulette SSUZZ

    WOW... That is going to be beautiful. Your colour combinations are very elegant and that is a very imaginative layout. I can hardly wait to see your finished quilt.
    Quilting is my PASSION not my pass time.

    Looks great so far. Needs you to decide on a color for setting triangles in between the blocks...Keep it going...

    Whereas I don't see the need for any setting triangles ... put the hexes tobether in normal OBW fashion.

    I can see many of the smaller ones spinning out of the large circles, and then gradually a conversion into the larger hexes. The challenge will be to transition from the circles to the hexes (both sizes) ... and you'll have to just cut into the hexes to make the curves fit. You might be able to group similar colour hexes together in those spin areas.

    Gorgeous, I would love to see the original fabric
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    They are beautiful! The hexes i would put together like OBW, but not sure about the circles. Maybe applique on a background? What ever you end up doing, it can't help but be amazing.

    Very cool! If you had enough of the paisley fabric, I would use it for piecing in the background. It would be fairly easy to appliqué the pieces together onto a whole background but I think it would look better pieced together. You might be able to find some ideas in the Bella Bella book on how to piece in large circles.

    Wow, I have a lot of trouble sleeping myself, but nothing this exciting ever came out of it. Those are beautiful. What was the original fabric. Like those circles and the hexagons.

    Love it. Very beautiful for the middle of the night cutting. I can't do that good in the daytime. Thanks for sharing.

    I bet you are going to be happy you did not go back to bed when you get them finished. They are so beautiful.

    "middle of the Night" will have to be its name when finished! You WILL of course show it to us won't you? Please, oh please!
