One Flower Wednesdays
I have joined One Flower Wednesdays and have made my first hexagon flower! Woo Hoo! I have always wanted to try this but I have never seen a quilt that I liked. The colors just weren 't me. Well, one of the blogs I follow, Journey of a Quilter, has been doing this for some time and I was intrigued. I then saw another blogger's flower garden and I loved her colors of tans and creams. So I decided I wanted to join this group. I chose Moda's Astor Manor Charm Pack and purchased one yard of a cream on cream, Martinique by 3 Sisters for Moda, for my background. I had purchased a pack of Quilt Patis a few years ago at a quilt show. I almost forgot that I had them. These are plastic templates. So here is my first flower! It is not perfect, and I may have to redo a petal, but here it is. When I told my hubby that it is one flower each Wednesday and it is for a quilt, he wondered what year it would be completed! I really don't know, but I will have fun making these cute little flowers! PS You will notice the basting stitches on one of the petals. I had decided that I could make a petal without a template, but I couldn't, and now I have to leave those basting stitches in until I join that flower to another flower or the background.
I love to laugh and have a good time with my family and friends. All my friends are quilters...what can I say! I am a member and quilt group leader of ASG(American Sewing Guild),BHQG (Baltimore Heritage Quilter's Guild), TAS (The Applique Society),JLWC(Jo's Little Women's Club)Civil War Club, 2 Dear Jane groups
