Nancy's thinking of setting her Morris Hexathon blocks all-over with dark triangles.
Love the Strawberry Thief border.
This is the set that Becky and Ilyse are using too. See a post here:
Here's a link to the instructions for the official set----is anyone going to use it?
Ilyse Moore has 61 hexies in her almost finished
project, which is titled "My Summer Obsession."
She is thinking about what goes in the corners.
Vintage hexie blocks set with striped triangles.
Deb Strain's Be Creative
If you shade things carefully the triangles
can dominate as stars.
In this vintage silk string hexagon, the maker
used black triangles and emphasized the stars
by using a medium purple diamond.
You can set the hexagon blocks with just the 60 degree diamond, an idea popular in the mid-20th century. I found several of these where the blocks are stacked with diamonds on the Quilt Index.
And several for sale
Great quilt from the sixties maybe,
plain hexagons, pink & lime green diamonds.
If the hexagons are all the same pattern it's
easier to get a coordinated look
but it works with samplers too.
Park Bench from Jaybird Quilts
The diamonds are twice the triangle.
You could set the sampler of hexagons in an all-over pattern, hexagon to hexagon.
As the Las Colcheras Quilt Guild did in their raffle quilt last year.

Homage, another group raffle quilt with hexies set side by side
by the Springwood Community Quilt Show
They also popped some chintz hexagons in there to good effect.
Lucy Kingwell's pattern Smitten
The advantage to working with 60 degrees is that you can integrate diamonds, hexagons and triangles of various sizes as in this version of Smitten by Mickey & April at the Sweetwater Cotton Shop.
