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.

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!
