Being happy and loving flowers. Fabric flowers.
Hello, my friends!
A Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt, entirely handmade, using the English Paper Piecing method! How proud I am!?...Uh! It was a lot of work, and still, it's a lot of work, but this quilt will be lovely!
I have here, flowers made from all my beloved fabrics.
It's a joy for me to touch them, to see them together.
I was tempted, first, to make the sides from a single piece but after few minutes, I've decided: it's better and even nicer to have sides from hexies...well, go for it: 240 more hexagons!!
Oh, I know: I'll keep the paper hexies! - who knows, maybe I will be able to make another quilt, sometimes.
They look like strings.
I sewn sticky notes on top, to not loose the right position for my first layout choice.
And because I like order and discipline, and a well organized work, I tried to arrange all the hexies, all the time, having a nice print distribution and symmetries of the prints for those flowers.
Also, it was a law for me, to keep the lengthwise grain for every single hexagon I've made.
This "rule" was broken only when I had to arrange some... "kaleidoscopes", for the middle flower.
This is what I have, so far, today:
Still a long way till finish, but I get closer!
