Only 23 to go........

I have had a big win on the hexagon front, I am now down to needing only 23 more flowers to then start putting them together.  My hexagon quilt is being made from fabrics used in other quilting projects, my problem now is I have used all the fabric I have so I am now needing to finish projects to create fabrics for this quilt, so it may sit still awhile.

A Few.
And then some more.

So it was time to move onto a new paper piecing project.
It may not look like it but this one is Hexagons

There is a tutorial here.

I am looking forward to my Rose Garden growing :o)

My Hexie project

Hexagons are my latest endeavour in quilting. I used a creative memories hexagon punch to make hexies from freezer paper.

 I ironed them onto different scrap fabrics.

Cut apart ready for edges to be glued down.

I have a long way to go but this is a very portable project to be taken anywhere to work on.
Happy hexing,

little garden bigger

My garden is growing with 4 flowers last 2 month.

quilt number 2

Hi everyone,thought I would update.I now have a good stack of hexis for my daughters quilt.
There are lots of lovely colours.
I now have to have a play around and see how they go together.
Would like to take it with me later in the year when I hopefully go to Australia to visit my daughter.xx

hi everyone,I had more fabric in the post today.I found a lovely place on line that sell 10inch squares of fabric in packs of 10.Today i had red green orange and blue.Ifound that a 10 in square is just enough for a 2inch hexi flower. So things are coming along nicely,ready to cut them out.I have already done pink purple yellow .
