This is stunning and surprising how it looks. I thought it was a painting at first! So intricate looking. How long did it take you? It would take me years I think.
It took me about two weeks to sew the blocks together, and then I left them up on my design wall for about 6 months tweaking the colours and blocks.  Then I sewed the rows together, and added the border and that took about a week.  The quilting took me three evenings, and then the binding took maybe an evening and a half.

It looks like you cut it up in Triangles, THEN sewed it into hexagons!
It really looks amazing! . It must really have taken a lot of patience to work on!

I actually did.  I'm sorry if that wasn't clear in my first post.  I cut six indentical triangles and then made hexagons from them. 

Thanks for all the nice comments, everyone!

I made this quilt recently using the One Block Wonder technique from Maxine Rosenthaal.  I used a parrot fabric to start, cut it all up into hexagons, and sewed it all back together.  It was like a puzzle, deciding which blocks to stick where.  I love the finished result; it hangs on my wall now.  It is a little brighter in person, but the indoor lighting from this shot is poor.



Here are some closeups of the blocks.

That's wonderful.  She sure has got that twirl down pat.  Good job.

That's incredible!  Your quilting looks great and the red border you chose really makes it pop. 

Great job!
