Default Hexy Stars - another fabric collection

I posted my first hexy stars a few days ago, and this is what I did for a boy - try to do even numbers for boys and girls!

I thought I had plenty of the tiny tan and cream check, but when I started putting the diamonds with the triangles, I was short, so used a pale tan. I think it will be okay, since I put it all sort of in the same line-up, maybe it will look like it belongs this way. If I had used a darker fabric it would have looked like a design decision!

I had a small piece of horse fabric that I used for the top and bottom fill. Wish I had more of this, love it and wanted to share it with you. Thanks for looking.

Fine starts and hexies. I am sure it will be loved. I thought the background variation was intentional, and nice.

Another gorgeous scrappy. I can see tumbling blocks also.

Coming along fine. I love how you incorporated that fabulous horse print as sort of a border.

It's lovely. The tan looks like it's supposed to be a shadow.
