Happily, my 'candy bowl' is starting to fill as the quilting for Candied Hexagons has started to gel.
Now that there are a few more blocks quilted I'm getting a better sense of what things will look like.
There are a couple of hexies stitched in the same star pattern which I really like and I think that it will be dominant throughout, but I'm still going to mix it up here and there.
I've also solved the puzzle of what to do in the mauve triangles. The notion of starbursts popped into my head and this is where I've landed.
It adds a real sparkle to the quilt and also frames the hexies nicely.
All of the diamonds around the edge of each hexies are quilted a quarter of an inch in from the seam.
So now that the planning is complete the quilting can get under way in earnest. There will be more experimenting with patterns to use inside the hexies, but at least I have three or four patterns that I can fall back on....M
