I discovered that I could fussy cut [center a motif in a specific shape] the kaleidoscope printed images on the Paula Nadelstern Fabracadabra panels I have. I realized that they work beautifully with 1-3/4" hexagon papers. The companion fabrics create quite a striking "flame" stitch, don't they?

I made 6 different 6-Pointed Stars and plan to sew them into a ring and add a center cut from the larger motifs. All is ready to go, but I'm on the road again tomorrow until Saturday night and for some reason my husband and dog still don't know how to work my sewing machine! Sigh.
In case you missed it, I also updated my Honeycomb Table Topper. Here are some pics of my recent update using my Kaffe Fassett fabrics:
