Her inspiration mosaic had a lot of brightly-colored hexagons laid out in interesting combinations, so I decided it was time for me to do some hexies. The layout for my hexies was inspired by the colors in the hexagons themselves. I really enjoyed playing around with the different colors and seeing which ones looked good together. I'm quite happy with how it came out, and I hope my secret partner loves it.
On the reverse side I played around with the quilting a bit. Another thing I noticed about my secret partner's inspiration mosaic was that all the things she had pictured had some fun geometric-looking quilting, so I did my take on "geometric quilting" while trying to make sure it didn't get too busy.
In addition to the tote, we were allowed to go crazy and make whatever kind of key fob we wanted for our partners. I stuck with the hexie theme and made my partner a reversible hexie keyfob with lobster clasp. Each side of the fob is made out of 6 half-inch hexies, and each side has a rainbow of colors.
I also added one of my new tags I had made recently to the bag. Now my partner will never be able to forget who she got the tote from.
