" Hexagons Gone Wild"
The hexagon has been popular in traditional quilting for centuries. Likely the most recognizable hexagon pattern is Grandmother's Flower Garden, popularized in the 1930's. More recently, the hexagon is the basic shape used to create the intricate One-Block Wonder quilts. It also frequently appears in the work of contemporary quilt designers such as Tula Pink, Kaffe Fassett, and Julie Herman. This 6-sided polygon has recently enjoyed a resurgence among both modern and traditional quilters.
Use your imagination to design and create a quilt based on the hexagon shape. You may use any techniques you desire, including applique, English paper piecing, foundation piecing, folded fabric, etc. Additional 60 degree family shapes such as the equilateral triangle and 60 degree diamonds may be included in your quilt, however the hexagon shape must be clearly recognizable.
