I have been wanting to make a zig zag quilt ever since I saw this one. I also had to have that fish fabric when I saw the same quilt and now it can't be found (unless you're willing to pay an arm and a leg or unless you have something good to swap.) Lucky I got it when it was affordable.
And here is the back. I guess I went a little overboard when collecting my yellows and oranges. I probably have enough to make another twin sized quilt. And in case you're wondering - this quilt is staying with me. Orange is my favorite color and orange and yellow is one of my favorite color combinations.
Started sewing my hexagons together finally! I have 93 of those flowers - so not enough for the size of quilt I want yet. But that's okay because I like making them.
Here is a tutorial which is pretty close to the way I do it. But I may do my own tutorial - what do you think?
I used paper pieces from here.
These ones are 3/4 inch (measuring 3/4 inch on one straight side).
There is also a good post about hexagons on The Sometimes Crafter with lots of other good info.
