Final Layout

Wow I have loved reading what everyone else has been doing, you are all so amazing!  Its incredible how addictive these little flowers can be.  I know with me, half of the addiction is the ability to cart the project everywhere I go. 

I have finished all the blooms (except one), and decided on the final layout, so now I am in the middle of making my blocks. 

This quilt is for my daughter who loves rainbows.  Mum and I slightly moved some of the flowers around since this photo. 

I was one pink flower short, but had a red one and a few yellow left over.  I plan on using these left overs and some earlier flowers where I discovered that I had cut the paper templates wrong, scattered on a fleece blanket and pillowcase to match.  

I've decided to go with plain white inserts, I had already drawn the flowers but we felt they melted into the rest of the flower garden too much. 

Happy Hexy Stitching!!!
