Here is the K quilt laid out without the black strips in the middle. It is about half sewn down but then I had to quit until I get a new iron. It will have wide black borders and a narrow red one if I can find a matching red or burgundy. There are two shades of red. I'd prefer the darker one if I can find it.
Here are a few close ups of some of the hexagons. The boxes are also hexagons and each triangle is made from three trapezoids. The smallest piece is 1 3/4 inch tall. There are a lot of seams on this quilt. I have been using Elmer's glue to stabilize the long bias seams. It works great until you have to rip out.
I'm really liking how this is turning out.
Oh, oh. I just noticed that I have the same boxes touching each other. Good thing it's not sewn down. It's amazing what you notice in a photo that you don't see when you are looking right at it.
I really like how this one is turning out. I'll be quilting it with a simple meander and try to avoid the spots where all the points come together in the middle of the hexagons. I'm just wondering if I should continue the meander over the border or do something different there. I guess I'll know more when I get the border on.
