Hexagons on Steroids

A few days ago I was on Amy Butler's free pattern website and saw a quilt made of these huge hexagons and WOW did I get excited. You know how I am about hexagons. I downloaded the pattern, complete with templates and thought I can do this sooooo much easier. Using what I learned from doing One Block Wonder quilts I made this. At the widest point it is 25 inches.

Each strip is cut 4 1/4 inches wide and I used the 60 degree angle on my 24 inch ruler to cut the triangles. Now I am shopping for some fun big print fabrics to make a modern hexagon quilt. The way I put these together will be fast and easy.
