"I really wish I had taken more pictures of this quilt. Even in the close ups I couldn't figure out how it was planned and constructed. At first I thought that it was some hexies and some diamonds in between. Then I realized it is probably all hexies. It is very hard to tell which parts belong to which hexies. She broke many of the hexies into three diamonds and used the fabrics to create secondary designs. And how did she get straight lines on the star???? Amazing!"

Did we mention that this quilt is hand pieced, hand appliquéd (where's the appliqué??), and hand quilted?

Take a look at the detail pictures. Can you tell which hexies have which fabrics??? Can you figure out Hexagon II by Fumie Sasaki?

The quilt contains hexagons and diamonds. The applique’ is where the large green triangles make the large star. Amazing work!

Looks like English Paper Piecing. I see no applique at all. Just EPP. Don't know why you would need applique with the great EPP work done here.

I'm not a fan of the fabrics, but the overall quilt looks fabulous. A lot of hand stitching.

I believe the hexigons are appliqued onto the blue border. Magnificent quilt! A masterpiece!

She used Karen Stone’s method for joining hexies.

I think the appliqué may be in the red and blue borders. The quilt is amazing, absolutely amazing. How did she do it?
