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.

Your flowers are wonderful and your little mini quilt is so pretty! Making hexies is so addicting and a great project to be able to pick up and take with you.

It looks like the "seeds" of your garden are well on their way to becoming blooming hexies!!
