After doing a Google search for Modern Hexagon Quilt, I saw many examples of slightly reduced sized hexagons set in a hexagon layout. I liked the cleanness of the added white space and decided to try my hand at designing my own modern hexagon quilt.
For the background I used a one patch layout. Although I wasn't planning to piece the one patch layout, I found the lines provided the perfect backdrop for placement of my English Paper Pieced Hexagons.
I then created a basic hexagon block in PolyDraw and placed the blocks on Layer 2. Rearranging those hexagons can be a bit addicting. This is where you can get really creative in designing a one-of-a-kind quilt.
Here is the quilt from the video. I have some leftover ombre fabrics from another project and plan to use them to make this quilt.
Here is one additional option. The fabrics are from Riley Blake Designs Pin Drop by Christopher Thompson. This was the free fabric download from Electric Quilt for July 2020. You can download the Pin Drop collection here.
I would love to see pictures of your modern hexagon quilt. Feel free to post in the Learning EQ Facebook group. I have set up a separate post just for your designs.
