More Doodled Hexagons

These could very well turn into a new obsession for me.  If you saw my last post, you know I had begun experimenting with doodling and painting hexagons to be used in English Paper Piecing.

I started another, larger rosette. Just one colour added this time. here is what some of the pieces look like before the edges were folded...not a very pretty sight!


ah...but here they are looking much better.


I began this rosette with a specific design planned (made up of a total of 19 hexagons) but suddenly realized that by moving and rotating the bits about, many other designs could be created with those same 19 hexagons....so I did just that to get a visual on the other possibilities before I thread my needle.












So,my rosette is ready to be stitched....but... you will have to wait for my next post to see which one I chose.

I plan to post a detailed tutorial of my process in the near future......if I provide a design....would you like to give it a try?

Definitely would like to try. Every single version is stunning - it seems a shame to actually stitch them together! Lol!
