I've passed the halfway point in making these hexagon flower garden blocks! All of those background minutes spent waiting at doctors' offices and in front of the TV in the evenings have added up to great progress on this quilt.
It's still very much a long term project, but Kaffe, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, Juliana Horner, Denyse Schmidt, and Art Gallery are all providing me with bright, beautiful colors to build these flowers a handful of hexagons at a time.
My hexagon papers and fabrics will be joining me on a road trip in a couple of weeks as my family heads out for our summer vacation.
Maybe I'll try to work on the grey background patches during that trip. There are oh-so-many of them needed, and I don't want to save them all until the end.
In my previous post I said I wasn't going to use a count to track my progress, but I couldn't resist!

Beautiful! You always inspire me with your work.ReplyDelete
Whenever I see bright, happy hexagons like yours, it makes me want to haul my repro fabrics away to the nearest donation site. Your flowers are just beautiful!ReplyDelete
