Hexagon stars........

I started putting the triangles in place making stars and then realized that I could add a half row at the top and bottom instead of 2 rows on the bottom.  I have the half hexagon die also.  The half hexagons on the sides will have to be trimmed because the cut is going the opposite way in the hexagon and there isn't a die for that.  I'll also need quarter hexagons for the corners.  I can see a couple hexagons that I need to move and then I'll start sewing 2 triangles to each hexagon and they can be sewn into horizontal rows.

I love this design, but sewing hexagons on the machine scares the heck out of me! Do you have a secret to sewing those terrible angles? Or is it a question of trail and error and so much practice?

This is so beautiful and rich looking, Wanda.

Beautiful. I too wondered about the angles like Marly does, but then I realized where the straight lines are created. However, keeping track of the hexagon with the different colored triangles has to be a nightmare.
