It's Hexie Friday! 6/7/13

I've been working on my first block for my hexie quilt. I've been auditioning backgrounds, vases, handles, leaf colors and such. Then I had to make the layout template to use for positioning. That requires I make a copy of the block placement in the magazine. This quilt is from an old issue of Quilter's Newsletter. Here's what I've settled on:
 
The photo was taken at night so the color isn't as true as it could be, but tomorrow starts June craziness, so it's post now or not til next Monday - LOL.  The flowers are placed exactly as the pattern set them, but I'm thinking the yellow one should be to the left a little bit to balance. Any comments?  I would love to see your Hexie project or otherwise.  It will be my treat to see and visit your loveliness as a respite from running around. Here's the linky:

What could be better than Applique or Hexies? Why the two of them together. I LOVE this one.
I adore you basket and updated my post to show a Youtube video in honor of your hexie. ....grin.

Love that basket block and the hexie flowers. I do think you're right about moving the yellow flower to the left a little bit. It seems a little squished, the way it is now.

Like Sophie I am a sucker for basket blocks. I do agree with you that maybe the yellow flower should be moved over just a tad. It really is a sweet block.

It is a beautiful block and I agree, the yellow should be scooted to the left a little. :)
I love it just the way it is. I'm not even a basket Quilt lover and I like this one it's beautiful Angie

Angie,
This is beautiful! A wonderful mix of applique and hexie blocks. I do agree, the yellow should be moved a tad to the left to be in balance with the other flowers. But, it is very nice as it is. I LOVE IT!
