Ombre Modern Hexies

DSC_47462.jpg

I am tempted to call this Geometric Rainbow 2.0 since it is so similar to my last big hexie project, but the jury is still out on that one. What I do know is that I fell in love with this fabric before I even cut it - and it was in fact painful to cut (I was so worried I was going to get the ombré effect out of order!) Vanessa Christenson of V and Co. was so sweet to send me the full ombré collection for Moda and this is exactly what I wanted to do with it, make a large scale hexagon piece. I will be sending this to her to have in her booth at Fall Quilt Market in Houston, so if you are there stop by and take a peek!

I usually stick with the darker brick wall on our building's patio but the white wall in my landlords basement was too tempting! Enjoy some pictures and some close ups :)

There are a total of 340 hexagons on this project - 17 hexies in each colorway. I used my Modern Hexies method of applying them to the backing fabric and then quilting from corner to corner.
