Watching my Garden Grow

My little seeds are starting to bloom! 
After putting the puzzle together...centers, leaves and a background...
...my garden is starting to take shape! (Of course they still need to be sewn together and some sunshine is needed - pictures are a little dark)

I love the hand piecing, it's very portable and at night I like to sit, relax, put my feet up and add to my garden.

One flower Wednesdays

A few weeks ago I clicked on the button One Flower Wednesdays and I was hooked!  I started making hexagons (after watching the great tutorials) and haven't stopped.  I started making a few flowers...
and then turned them into a miniquilt...

I enjoyed making the flowers so much I decided to make a quilt.  The fabric I'm using is is suppose to be for a  Little Pink Stars Quilt.  I started on it in February and made only 2 of the VERY small blocks (machine pieced). Months went by I received more and more of the fabric (BOM) but I just couldn't get myself to make more blocks - No Fun!.  So I decided to have some fun and make hexagon flowers - and watch my garden grow.

So here's the start to my garden.
The next step was asking my daughter to show me how to add a button to my blog.  She clicked around real fast - and there was the button! 
Thank you for sharing your hexagon flowers - they're beautiful! - I love the colors.

Siggy Mail!

I've received 5 more beautiful siggies - Thank You!!!  I really enjoy reading the lettters and hearing about the quilters and the reason they chose the design they did.  It's interesting hearing about their families, towns, interests and quilting/crafts they do.  Thanks for sharing a part of yourself with me.
