I decided to make the entire background out of hex's and use a solid/other fabric to encase the circles in. I like the idea of using black fabric.....such a good contrast against these colors, don't you think?
But I'm not quite sure how I'm going to go about it. I am thinking of doing a reverse applique technique my friend Susan developed. (You can see the start of my Georgia piece here and the finish piece here. using her technique.)
I printed out the design and started to color in just to get some ideas. Always fun to play this way isn't it!
I know these look pretty rough....but it's giving me some ideas to work from. I may have to tweak the design and I guess in the meantime I'll just keep sewing hex's!! HA Besides...what else do I have to do! 😜😜
