Only 137 flowers to go!

After dithering and deliberating over my stash I have finally decided to use my BIG collection of red and white fabrics for my Hexagon quilt.I started cutting a couple of weeks ago and then got down to stitching at the FNSI last Friday.  I have completed 3 flowers and 1 embroidered hexagon- only 137 flowers and 58 fillers to go!!!
It is great fun though and this is my first post to share my progress. I am not very good at glueing.  I tend to get fabric and threads stuck everywhere but on the papers where I want them, so I stitch baste - slower but less frustrating for me.  What is the saying about an old dog and new tricks?
I am so enjoying watching all the beautiful and varied Vignette Hexagons taking shape.

Happy stitching everyone.

Love the idea of just working with reds and whites. It will look amazing when done.
