Hexagon Log Cabins

I have started a new project and it is hexagon log cabins!  I saw it on The Sewing Chick and I knew I wanted to do it and had just the fabric I wanted to use.  I was given Children at play by Sarah Jane about 18 months ago and decided it is just the right combination of large and small designs perfect for this.
This is my first hexagon.  The centre hexagon is 5" diameter and I added on a 0.25" seam allowance all the way around.  The strips were cut 1.25" wide.
The sewing chick did scrappy rings around most of her hexagons and showed some with just three colours and each ring the same fabric so I decided to do mine like this.
I have made two so far. They are fun to make.
I have fussy cut the next few hexagons so I will be starting on them soon.  I will have more to show next week.  Have an amazing weekend!

  13. Charming. I love the center fabrics you used. It doesn't look like it is too difficult? It would be a good addition to the 100+ quilt bucket list. So sad I can't make all the quilts I want to make, unless I have 9 lives (all of them where I'm retired!)
