I’ve been basting triangles in my setting fabric so I can work out how many more hexagon stars to make. I took advantage of a sunnyish day to lay it out for a “see where I’m at” photo.

With triangles

I reckon if I stick to 40-ish stars then I’ll have enough of the setting fabric. This will be a smallish lap-size quilt but I’m happy with that! Although I might consider adding borders…I’ll just have to see where the muse takes me 🙂

    A couple of narrow borders in co-ordinating fabrics would be a great way of increasing the size a little, especially if you made hexie star corner posts…

    I have been liking the individual stars but they are even better massed together. This is going to be gorgeous.

  9. Fabulous – that backing fabric is perfect to offset those stunning stars!
