More denim blocks

I've had a raft of hexagon-centered circle blocks floating around in my head since I hand-pieced a fussier version for Lynne's Hexalong this summer.


Now I've made patterns for six blocks. One of them (the lower left) found a home in the Pear Blossom quilt. Another (in the center) has already finished off a pillow. All of the fabrics are reclaimed from worn jeans.


Here are the pieces for five of them. It's a lot of work pushing the rotary cutter through all that denim!
