Wow I think this is gorgeous and love two fabrics. I cannot imagine making all those hexagons but beautiful. How big would it be in end?
The hexs are 1/2" and the whole quilt will be about 42" x 42"
I am completely in love with your mockup, although I really like the other ideas too (especially the funnel). There are some really beautiful modern quilts that use "dead space" as a deliberate artistic choice -- it gives you a space to feature the quilting rather than the piecing.
I love your rainbow machine idea, can't wait to see it all put together.
Love the fabric and your idea but it will be a very long project....
How long do you have for your challenge? I like the rainbow in rows like you have now, I wonder if you went with black on 1/2 the centers of the strips, every other 'row'? The picture up there currently would be a really really long project, or at least I would take over 2 years to work on it. That doesn't mean I don't like it, but I am curious to know if that will fit in your time span for your guild.
I also like the idea of gears, maybe make some gears out of EPP and then applique them down so that they 'crank together' on a background, but then you would have background to think about as well for quilting etc. But it would be faster, or could be faster, depending on how many you do.
I don't understand the funnel idea, but that's because I can't picture it in my head. I like that you're coming up with cool things in new & interesting ways for quilting. Part of what I like best, I think, is the possibilities.... and all the cool art that comes from fabrics! Good luck!
wow, I love this design. How are you coming along. I would love to see your progress.
