Instead of starting with a square in the centre, start with a hexagon, then add some applique here and there … and look what can happen!
And some of the blocks have more than the usual strips in the lightest fabric.
In the design above some of the blocks are a much larger centre hexagon with just one round of dark strips around applique.
Some of the Hexagons don’t even have a strip added, just applique.
In this project file I am doing all the things I do to square blocks … use background fabric more than in the basic block, joining pieces together by removing seam lines before cutting the fabric … breaking the rules about how a particular block is pieced.
I can not pick a favourite this week … love them all.
The hardest part of making one of these is picking which one!
More Log Cabin designs mid week, next week.
