    I just finished this one this morning. :-) You may have seen my earlier post of the top before it was quilted here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-124114-1.htm The color in that picture is closer, but I wanted this post to show the FMQ so I adjusted them for that purpose. Hope they are clear enough to see easily.

    The freemotion quilting I did on this one was easy enough that even if you are a beginner, you might want to give it a try...
    First I stitched in the ditch around the hexagons, then I did some simple arcs and "s" curves in the black to flatten it a bit and make the cubes stand out.

    I plan to put some "pockets" on the back so that it can be hung on the wall.

    I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out; here are the results.

    Here's a closeup of the "s" curves while I was quilting it.

    I quilted gentle "s" curves between the outside of the hexagons and the border and added a swirl here and there for interest.

    I like the way the cubes appear to "float" :-)

    In some of the narrower black strips, I just did arcs.

    I think you can see the "s" curves around the hexagons in this picture.

    It is beautiful. Don't look like my FMQ beginner level though.

    Interesting idea. Very similar to the one I designed and made for the 2009 Hoffman Challenge (was selected to travel for 15 months).
