Hexagons to triangles quilt

I finished this quilt a couple of years ago. It's made of black hexagons surrounded by mixed coloured half hexagons. I puzzeled the half hexagons so that it seemed like triangles in between the black hexies.


















You have to study it closely to understand how I did it. The hexagons are about 1 1/2". All the hexies are hand sewn, and hand quilted. Take a closer look at the quilting in the next picture.



















Hope this can inspire you to use all your small scraps, and make a real beauty out of them.

this must have taken for ever to do but so so worth it it is beautiful. I had a go on the Sizzix big shot machine the other day, it has a die that cuts hexagons, makes life very easy if doing a large piece, fortunately my daughter has the machine for her paper crafts so if I want to have a go only need to buy the die or maybe 2 one for the fabric and the smaller one to cut thr papers.

Hi Tubakk - I really like how you coordinated the center triangles. I didn't think of doing that on mine. Great quilting design as well...to follow it out to the borders.
