original fabric

I don’t usually post pictures of unfinished quilts, unless it’s a little sneak peak, but I’m was so excited about finally getting this top together, that I had to post it.  The bottom picture is the original fabric.  I stacked it in six layers, each exactly the same and cut strips, then cut the strips into triangles.  Each set of triangles is identical, so they can be sewn into a hexagon that resembles a kaleidoscope. Then, the hexagons were arranged, and rearranged and rearranged again until I was heartily sick of them and had to walk away.  I like my final layout of the hexagons, but I’m a little disappointed that the hexagons don’t look all that different from the original fabric.  Traditionally, the original fabric is used as a border, but I’m not sure I’ll do that.  Maybe it’s time to walk away for a while again.
