Die Cut Week: Big Letter

Hi!  it's Amanda!  Unless you have been living under a rock, or your internet went out over a year ago, you are well aware that hexagons are all the rage in paper crafting.  I don't know what it is about these little shapes, but I am attracted by the clean lines and symmetry.  I thought it would be fun to pair modern hexagons with sweet and pretty country prints and quilt them together. 
Could this quilted-hexagon-burlap-monogram-wreath-type-thingy BE any more trendy?  There's a lot going on, but I think it works.   And it looks fantastic on my front door!

Since I wanted to stitch the hexagons, I adhered them to a piece of cardstock first.  I traced around the wooden monogram so I would know where to place the hexagons.

Trace the monogram onto the quilt and trim excess paper, leaving a little bit of an edge.  Adhere the quilt to the wooden monogram with Mod Podge and let dry completely.  Flip monogram over and trim excess paper with a craft knife.  

The trick for keeping the quilt from looking too cluttered is to stitch around a few random hexagons. 

I chose to hang this letter like a wreath, but it would also look good standing alone or in a frame. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
