It was pretty easy to pick out the colors I wanted for the circle and half circles since I've been making hex's in turquoise, orange and yellows! Not sure why! HA
Laying out hex's for the circle. It says 'greens' on the paper because originally I was going to do an applique quilt and use color wheel for my inspiration. That didn't last long!
I finished sewing the half circles and started this week putting together the full circles! The orange is brighter than what you see in this picture.
This is the container I use for keeping my hex supplies and fabric.. Keeps them organized so I can carry from the sewing room, out on the deck or in the LR to watch TV and sew.
Hubby cut a 14" piece of plywood for me several years ago, which I then glued a rubber mat on it. That mat keeps my supplies from slipping off as I sew. Works a lot better than my lap! I've used this so called mat for all my hand work..embroidery and even beading.
I like the orange and blues/turquoise colors together. Don't ask...I haven't a clue what I'll do for the rest of the design! But I will be making the background/foreground?? in one piece. I'll then cut out the circles/half circles just as I did with my first horse hex. At least, that's one option!
The blue/turquoise and 1st set of the large orange circle hex's are all sewn together. Now to make some more darker orange for the fourth full circle. I may even make hex's for the solid areas of the piece . Then I could make some type of circle pieces to applique around the circles. Just thought of that as I was adding this pictures. See...I said I wasn't sure what I would do for the background! But I forever change my mind so I guess we'll see!
