That's how I like to look at it, anyway.
Something about the bright-- almost overly cheerful-- color combination and the hexagon shape cries out retro kitsch to me. Not my usual style, but I like it anyway. I saw the two fabrics together in my scrap fabric bin while I was making hexagons and thought they'd make a fun pair.
This also gave me a chance to practice attaching the hexagons. I used whip stitch, and while it gave me a satisfyingly clean join, it was somewhat labor-intensive. Perhaps I made more stitches than was needed...?
While I found fellow hexagon addicts recommending this place for a template as you can determine your own particular size, I prefer this one as it prints more hexagons per page than the former site. Also, the printed hexagons are not connected, which makes them much easier to cut, I think! The hexagons I used are just a little under an inch.
I like this combination so much that I'm thinking of creating a little sewing set... Meanwhile, I'm off to make more hexagons!
