I love each of these star-in-a-hexagon blocks. Together, though, I’m not so sure.
Are they going to be just toooo crazy? I feel they might need spacing with something easier on the eye. I think the options are:
1. Intersperse with neutral coloured shapes eg hexagons or triangles
2. Make the stars as I am doing but do half with neutral (white or pale pink?) or contrasting (dark red?) background pieces
3. Applique the hexagon stars onto neutral or contrasting background squares.
I am inclined to go with the first option, but not sure which shape would be best. The hexagons would have four inch sides, but that’s a lot bigger than I’ve previously pieced with English paper piecing. I don’t know if size is an issue or not! Otherwise, it would be equilateral triangles but I’m a bit worried about the bias edges…Your thoughts would be appreciated, dear reader 🙂
