This idea was floating in my head spurred on by the 2015 Pantone Quilt Challenge. Anne at Play Crafts and Adrianne at On The Windy Side are hosting this challenge again this year.
I pulled out a couple Circle of Geese paper piecing templates and started there. I just randomly places the different shades for texture. The fabrics are a mix of Kona, Shot Cotton and random scraps dug out from the depths of the bucket.
A couple weeks before I started, during my brainstorming phase ~ I saw this gorgeous solid staring me down. I decided it was going to be in the Pantone Challenge piece. That I was sure of! I think, but not positive this color is Bella Tawny Olive.
Hexagons. Why not. It may work, it may not!
The bee part anyway! They were perfect as 1" hexies. Sweet little bees...buzz, buzz, buzzing!
I'm a little bummed that I couldn't get the true color of this Tawny Olive. It's similar to Kona Wasabi or Cactus. I made a few 3/4" hexagons last night and this morning I decided to throw in some 1/2" as well. Apparently I'm taking this project in some direction ~ hexagons seem to be the theme!
