My hexies are multiplying - not at a fast pace, mind you, but slowly and surely I am making progress.
My original idea was to make a quilt, and that is still my intention. Using an online calculator to do the Maths, I'll need 1313 hexagons. That will be enough to make a quilt the same size as my scrappy blocks quilt.
So far I've sewn 294 hexies into 42 flowers and I'm guessing I have another couple of hundred single hexies made. That leaves about 800 hexies to go. Shouldn't take me long... LOL!!!
And here are my 42 flowers. I think it looks too busy with them placed directly together - perhaps a solid colour is needed in between the flowers.
I'm not exactly sure where I'm headed as far as layout. I rather like the traditional Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts I've seen. Most of them seem to have a double layer of petals and that's definitely an option.
Or maybe I'll do something random with the design and create a picture by adding stems and leaves. I'm leaning towards this idea, but the placement and planning will almost certainly add significant time to the process. We'll see how I feel several hundred hexies down the track.
What would you do with lots of hexie flowers?
