Hexagon Play


So last night J Man took out all my 'flowers' put them on the floor, and started laying them out.  He had fun playing with them, and coming out with his own layout.  This is what he came up with.  It is what I would have done, no, but I like what he did.

Interesting to see them all my 'flower's laid out.  I do like how they all look.  Right now I still plan on doing a colour wash type layout, and I think it will look good.  Undecided about size at this point.  I think if I ever get this done...lol... I think I would then start a monochromatic hexagon quilt.  I would probably do all red as it is J Mans favourite colour. 



Then last night while I watched the Canucks lose I basted some hexagons using the vintage fabric I got in the mail last night.

It's so much fun to see what kids can come up with! He could be a future designer!

You've left some thoughtful comments on my blog lately...much appreciated. First visit here...absolutely love that backdrop. How cool!! Here's what I know about quilting-nothing, but I enjoy the beautiful colors and patterns. Every quilter needs appreciaters, right?
Loved your post back a few clicks about what you've learned. Wisdom is a great thing-and you've got it.
