Neverending Hexagons.....

I love 30's prints... and I love hexagons. So a couple of years ago I decided to embark on a Grandmother's Flower Garden. I have lots of flowers made, more to make, and have a few actually put together.

Then I decided... why not try 1/2-inch???? So, I cut out some Civil War prints (my new passion) and some Kona Natural and get those together. No clue what I'm going to do with it (no it is NOT going to be a full-size quilt)... I just like putting them together.

Now I have challenged myself (with a "You're nuts!" from my Sundae Quilter pals) to try the 1/4-inch. Gonna look for those at Quilt Odyssey in two weeks.

I'll let you know what the address is for my rubber room :o)

The diamond hexie project is beautiful! Not sure on the size there, but I definitely could see it as a table topper/decor. I always admire the hexies on everyone else's blogs; DEFINITELY NOT my cup of tea, though.

Looks great! I did a small clutch bag with the 1/2 inch ( I think) and 30's fabric. I rewally want to do a big flower garden. Someday. Not today.

Ohhh nifty work so far... you need to take these pictures with a quarter next to them... or something that shows scale. I'm plugging away on mine but each of the flowers will be put on a square background. Easier, faster and someday I might actually finish it! And, did I say small... quilt that is... obviously 1" isn't that small!
