Recipe for Friendship Part 2

So you can see the true colour and detail of the fabric used, I snapped a close up.  My original idea was to have a mix of hexagons as the center of the quilt and use the yellow and red polka-dot fabric as the border, but that was over three years ago and now I see things differently.

The new plan has the center of my Recipe for Friendship quilt looking like a very large hexagon flower, 34 inches to be exact.  All the yellow polka-dot fabric is gone now, but I still have quite a bit of the red polka-dot and a solid red that can be added to the mix if need be.

Next up, a round of colourful hexagons!

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, for in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.  ~Kahlil Gibran

Until next time.....happy quilting!

Hi Karen - interesting how tastes & ideas can change when a project is something that takes ages to make... I will love to see how you progress it from here... I haven't done hexy's for a while now, but will get back into it soon, I promise!

Karen will the existing large flower be the focus of your new quilt or will you continue the same pattern throughout? I love all the bright colors in your hexie box!
