Valerie at made a beautiful quilt with split hexagons. What a great idea!

I made one in EQ7. You can download the file here.

Here is how I did it….

After playing around for a bit I decided just to make a long skinny block. Mine is 2 x 30.

I then started a Vertical Strip Quilt. I popped the blocks in and flipped every other one. Then I started playing around.

For this quilt I right clicked on a color then clicked Add Shades & Tints. It will add darker and lighter variations of the color you picked to the sketchbook.

Then, I clicked the Random Recolor tool.

Here is that same quilt after I clicked  Random Recolor > Map to fabrics.

The first quilt after  Random Recolor Tool > Shift Hue.

The first quilt and  Random Recolor Tool > Randomize.

And of course you could make a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt BUT without Y-seams :)
