Bubbles and Hexagon Quilts
Say what? Bubbles? Hexagons? Together? Yes, and we use Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls! Sounds very yummy, doesn't it?
You can do a lot with half-hexagons. Actually, I think anything with a 60 degree baseline is magic! I have seen a variety of quilts on Pinterest that use this concept. I had this first quilt published in 1997, and I wasn't the first person to do this. There is nothing new under the sun, right?

What if the neighboring half-hexagons are the same color? My Bubbles and Hexagons quilt was made using 2-1/2" strips (can you say Jelly Rolls?)
