I don't like hexagons! Don't know why, either. They just rub me the wrong way. Octogons - OK; triangles - So-so; squares - oh yes! Hexagons - take them away please! LOL!
Anyway - I had a pattern for a cross make up of 'snow crystals' and I wanted to just use the flakes independently. Because of their six-sided nature I decided to actually use a hexagon background (it came in a 6x6 pad I bought). I pricked out three of the flakes and nine of the little centers to stitch.
Now, you can't tell it from the photo but the flakes are stitched with navy blue AND royal purple.
No reason why I backed it with dark teal other than it looked good with the yellow and pink background.
I added a blue rhinestone to each of the large flakes.
