WHICH WAY EDNA?
I used the One Block Wonder technique except 6th 60 degree triangle is a different fabric.
6th triangle fabric
I used Timeless treasures Butterfly magic and dark swirl. The larger butterfly fabric was the 6th triangle for each hexie. This worked out so nicely by using 3 different fabrics from the same fabric line. 3 3/4" strips
Original fabric (5 triangles)
See the different 6th triangle?
Test my new idea cutting out paper hexies
What if butterflies were flying out from the center?
I couched yarn around the raw edge butterflies and covered with teal tuelle. Then covered the other butterflies with navy tuelle and attached piping along the edges.
I added more butterflies flying in different directions with machine embroidery, hence the name "Which Way Edna?"
I free motioned wavy lines on the 6th triangle and cathedral type curves along the other 5.
Free motion quilted different motifs in each dark blue hexagon. So fun!
