    I normally quilt the obws from the back too as it is far easier to see where you've been and are going - so once the cubes are SID, I can see them clearly and that way can avoid going over them.

    Your quilt is beautiful Kitty, love your design, and the cubes are wonderful!

    Katrine, do you SITD the hexagons, or each triangle in each hexagon?

    Thanks! I am working on my first one.

    Here is my progress so far. I love making the cubes, but am not sure my fabric choices are right. I may have to buy some better coordinated fabrics... Let me know what you think. Placement of hexagons is so difficult!

    I just bought fabric to make one of these quilts. I an gion to use a 60` ruler to cut the pieces. My question is, what size strips did you cut for these hexagons? I am thinking about cutting my strips 4 1/2". Is that too wide to cut the strips? I am actaully going to make my hexagons into separate blocks with sashing around them so I am thinking I want bigger hexagons--but I don't want them too big. What do you suggest?

    This thing keeps changing! Here is the latest version. I bought some fabrics to make the cubes, changed the orientation and rearranged the flow of colors. Please let me know if you see some changes I should make.

    I have a lot of bubbles because I didn't know how wonderful starch is when I started this project ops: . I'm just using massive blasts of steam for now to wrinkle the block up enough to cause the shape to lay flat within the quilt top. I'll probably iron those out when I go to qult it, simply because I know when it is washed it will have some shrinkage anyway, which will definately help wiht the bubbles

    I'm excited to get this finished. It's amazing how different those hexes look sewed together compared to just being pinned!
    Love, love, love this! Mine is on the design wall, driving me nuts!

    How do I quilt this?

    I don't usually post photos of unfinished projects. But I am asking for feedback on how to quilt this. I plan to FMQ on my Janome Horizon, and am afraid that the elaborate FMQ designs I usually use will be lost on this one. Any ideas out there?

    Thanks,

    Nicky
