Monday morning flowers

This is the last week that Life under Quilts is hosting a Monday morning link party. I arrived late to the party so have only participated for a few weeks. I have enjoyed posting my progress and being able to see what others are working on. I am going to continue posting my progress on my blog so that I have a record of how I made this quilt. I think it will be interesting to look back when it is finally done and see where I started from.


This is my current stock of flowers. I have made more colored flowers than cream flowers in the past few weeks ,


There are about 40 center hexies here that will be going with me in two weeks on my Alaska cruise. I plan on doing some stitching while relaxing on the deck. I will be sewing these into cream flowers.


I am now at 5 rows of colored flowers by 10 rows. The 10 rows will be the width of the quilt. I am now working on sewing strips of 10 flowers to add a row at a time. Finding it a challenge to take photos as it gets bigger.

Have a great day and happy hexing.

    This is going to be so beautiful when finished…and I really like the idea of doing them by rows.

      I started just joining flowers until I read on a quilting blog that it worked better in rows and I find I do like it better, as it gets larger its more manageable to do the rows.

      I have met someone on the roll call for my cruise who is also doing a grandmothers flower garden quilt, we are going to arrange to meet on board. She had not thought to check out the quilt shops in Alaska and is now googling them to get their locations so that she can shop. I will take photos of hexies in Alaska for sure.

    Wow! I love your design. Those cream flowers make it really special.
    Never would have thought of that.

  7. I am Carol from Postcards From Panama and I made my GFG with Inklingo. Print the cutting, pinning and sewing lines on the back of your fabric. Sooooo much easier and more accurate than EPP.

    Hi Carol, I am surprised and honored to have a comment from you as your wonderful quilt was the inspiration for my design. I have checked out Inklingo but I was not sure how it would work since I am using mostly scraps.
