The flowers, they are growing :)

I have been spending every sitting still moment putting these little things together.

I followed the great tutorial from Sunshine Creations and it just couldn't be easier!

I used my entire package of templates (which was supposed to have 75 i nit but there were only 72) to make the hexagons and then just started piecing them together. Of course I am already second guessing my choices but I am sticking with them.


I have put together 4 of this size and gone another round on 2 of them.













I am going to use green to tie them together (after I buy it). Not all of the fabrics I am using have purple in them so I don't know if I want to mix the centers or just keep on using purple. Any suggestions?


Have I mentioned to anyone that I love this method?

I just ordered several different shapes and sizes of the paper pieces so I can play more!! The quilt shop only had a few and when I started to buy both packages of the size I needed the lady acted like I shouldn't be greedy. I'm out, I need more so I ordered directly from the company. Plus, they are on sale and have a lot of different shapes that the store didn't have AND I don't have to drive back to the shop which is no where near any place I need to be.

I have been so frustrated at having all of these pretty fabrics and no time to do anything with them and now as I have been looking at so many different patterns that use this method, it almost makes me giddy to think about what I can accomplish.

Do the pictures look messed up to anyone else but me? They look fine on the edit but when I view the blog they look messed up. This is so frustrating.

Your flowers are so pretty.

I can never seem to get my pictures where I want them. Like you said, they look fine on the preview....and then it is all messed up. Well it really is a miracle to even get them posted!!!!

A couple are stacked, but it's okay. You can click on the one in the back and still see them.

I love your flowers! Your stitches are so tiny. Good job!

No! I can't see your stitches. LOL! That's why they're so tiny.

Mine always look like I'm trying to sew a tom cat into a tow sack.

I have no idea how you do those cute little flowers, but I love them! I think it's great to use green to tie them all together! It will look just like a garden!
