Hand dyed fabric and two flowers

For my Flowergarden I did these two flowers and
have now 53 flowers and some hexies done.
About 100 flowers will be needed, haven't decided yet on how large it will be.


Then I made
 these butterflies and flowers to put on a miniquilt.
I like making little embellishments for quilts


I bought this
Friendship Triangles book by Edyta Sitar the other day,
it is a beautiful book and it has step-by-step technique for
creating half-square triangles among other things.

Have been dyeing
some fabric for my  Dear Jane Quilt



"Happiness is to be found along the way,
 not at the end of the road, for then the journey is over and it is too late.
Today, this hour, this minute is the day, the hour, the minute for each of us
to sense the fact that life is good, with all of its trials and troubles,
and perhaps more interesting because of them."

Take care and enjoy what ever you are doing.

These hexis are beautiful. Was the fabric fussy cut or just happen by accident?

I love your hand dyed fabrics and all your quilting siggies and hectagons! I have never heard of these "siggies" but it sure looks fun.
