Sewing the hexagons........

It was finally time to start sewing the hexagon star quilt.  The pieces were on a design wall in the basement but I decided to sew them on the main level since I had been sitting and socializing a good part of the day yesterday.
In this photo I'm showing that I pinned the 2 triangles onto a hexagon to carry them upstairs to sew.  The row above has already been sewn to this point.



Next I sewed 2 of the hexagon/triangle parts together.  I only carried pieces of one row at a time upstairs so I wouldn't get the parts mixed up.




I cut all of the pieces on my Accuquilt Studio die cutter with GO! dies.  There are notches for matching so the sides are easy to line up.










My white cactus is the only one in full bloom right now.  I have one bud on a couple other plants.  Three or four of my cacti haven't bloomed yet this winter.

My favourite 'star' is the one with the big orange blossom in the middle, If I ever made anything like your quilt, in a smaller version, I'll know where to come back for reference. Thanks for sharing your sewing hints; I do take notice of what you write :)
Our pink cactus is still in flower and some cuttings I took last year have started budding. I just had another look and one that is only in water has a flower on it. I tried 2 ways to get them started - water and compost - looks like they both worked.

This one is mind boggling to figure out. Once you get it, I see the easy sewing part. Love how the stars appear in this.

I have too many projects going now, but you make me want to pull out the hexagon die and triangle die and start cutting and sewing.

My machine is downstairs too and it was such a nice day yesterday that I couldn't bring myself to not be up in the sunshine. I opted for a little shovelling outside instead :). It's looking lovely, Wanda.

Thanks for telling us how you cut the triangles, that helps us. This is going to be an outstanding quilt.

Thank you for the explanation of how you are putting these together. I bookmarked it.

Yes, it's so easy to get one of the triangles in the wrong place with this one. I love how this is all coming together and such beautiful colours.

Oh, wow, this is going to be so pretty. Matter of fact, it's pretty right now!

The appearing stars in the piecing are really fun.
