I really wanted to try this technique but didn't want to spend a lot of money on it. So this is my $20 twin sized quilt top (I spread it on our queen bed) I learned a whole lot and will definitely make another one (fabric is already purchased) The people at my local fabric shop were very interested as I ran around with my angle mirrors.

Everywhere I look, I can see hexagon possibilities. I think I'm obsessed!

The close-up of the six hippo heads is hilarious. :D I like it how you see the black zebra noses sprinkled all over the quilt.

I love the way it looks but I've been afraid to try, is it hard to figure out where to cut?
