For the last 2 years I have been involved in an Inchy hexagon swap with fellow hexaculturalists from all over the world. Each month I would receive two, 1″ finished sided, hexagon flowers in my choice of colours and patterns.
|My collection to date|
There is a HexyMF Quilt a long going on at Fatquarterly and I have enough to make the beautiful Lillybelle Hexy MF quilt. As usual, I cannot conform to a pattern and decided I should add a betweenie to make it larger. This is my plan.
I drew up a few scenarios and decided I liked the ‘exploding hexy’ betweenie the best and made a prototype last night using scraps from my humungous scrap bin (The scrap vomit quilt is definitely on my list of quilts to make).

It will sit between clusters of flowers. I will probably use solids in grey tones with a charcoal centre as the hexagon flowers are quite busy and scrappy.
Even though the wedges are small it was not a difficult block to piece. I am working on templates to make it easier to cut and trace.
There are many ways to join hexagon flowers. What would you use?
