I do admit to having a fascination with these little shapes. Not sure what the appeal is, but I can be looking at a whole wall of quilt blocks, and my eye will go straight to a hexagon first!

don't worry about all the little corners poking out.

I have been working on the early stages of a project that I plan to pull together as a class for Bear Patch, probably starting in the fall. It will be set up as a series of classes and is based on a design I saw at last fall's Quilt Market in Houston. It comes all the way from Australia, and is destined to be fun! I will teach the English paper piecing method to create many assorted blocks. I am working on samples in 2 very different themes.

|My favorite brights|
For the more contemporary-looking brights, I am experimenting with a setting that will create a ring of white around each block. I have a way to go to make enough different blocks to work into a reasonable size. It won't be a king size quilt, this I know for sure!
