Isn't there a saying about mimicry being the highest compliment? If not, there should be.
After I saw this quilt from the Tokyo Quilt Festival on Flickr I fell in instant quilty love.
While I am not fond of hand quilting and therefor kind of allergic to quilting hexigons, I do love the geometry and design possibilities. This quilt may be my favorite ever example of hexigon use.
So, I elected to do a bit of this on a smaller scale. I used 1.5 inch hexigon templates and then made a few diamonds and larger hexis to fit.
I love how this came out. The different sizes of hexi fool the eye with the different prints. It almost creates a while new print. While I am not asure I have the patience to do this on a larger scale it is tempting...
