Slow hexie progress

I was busy last week and did not get much progress done on my grandmothers flower garden quilt.

I stitched the connecting hexagons to get this row ready to add.


And then discovered that in order to keep the pattern, I need to make 10 more of these cream flowers so that I can add the last row of colored flowers and end with a cream row to be consistent with cream all around. I thought that I had made all of the flowers so its back to basting and making flowers for a while.

Currently the edge looks like this.


I could add another cream hexie and 2 half hexies to make this be a straight edge , I will decide once I make the last of the rows.


I did get this disappearing nine patch done over the last two weekends. So there was quilting being done.

    This looks great~ I’m a big fan of half-hexie usage to straighten hexie borders. I’m planning to do the same on my current quilt. Have fun basting the last of the flowers! Thanks for linking up~

    Very nice! I am also deciding on the edges of the quilt now – borders or no borders?

    Wow…so close to finishing and it looks terrific! I like the half-hexies on the edge and that is how I think I am going to finish mine as well. So excited to see it coming together!

    I love your disappearing nine-patch!

    Sometimes it’s so hard for me to find the motivation to fill in those EPP edges…

      I don’t want to rush the finish just to get it done… but I am dreading the thought of how many hexagons and half hexagons I will have to make for the edges… not going to count just keep making them… leftovers will be the start of the next project!
