After deliberating for quite a while, I've decided on how to sew my hexagon flowers together. It's been two months since my last hexie post, and I've been steadily stitching away.
Thanks for all your suggestions re possible variations for sewing a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. As you can see, I've gone with a single row of neutral around each flower.
As I mainly hand sew while watching TV, progress is happening faster than I thought. Perhaps I'm watching too much TV... LOL!!!
30 out of 115 flowers have been sewn together - ¼ of the way there!!! I'm only after a lap quilt, so I think I'll have enough flowers made - or at least close to it.
The small blue bag is my travel sewing kit. However, as I can no longer fit the growing hexagon quilt inside, I now stuff the quilt into the denim/flower bag I designed a few years ago. I'll need a bigger bag soon.
Everyone in the family thinks I'm mad stitching the same thing over and over. Perhaps they're right... LOL!!! But I really do find it therapeutic. I think I'll miss it once I've finished.
Anyone else out there crazy enough to attempt hand sewing a whole quilt?
