Tuesday

One flower

This flower is made of 5/8" hexagons. 

I have sewn 1" Half Hexagons on both sides of my top.
I'm thinking of a border and appliqué 
some smaller flowers
like this 5/8" or 1/2" on the border.
I'll make some more flowers and see how it will look. 

I just don't want to stop making flowers.
If you like to see some more flowers, just visit 
Karen  at Journey of a Quilter. She is hosting this 
Garden Party every Wednesday.
Thank you Karen!!!!

Sweet Nostalgia

This is my block for May - How does your garden Grow?
Designed by Dorothy Baker. 

Finished eleven blocks - just one more, and I can start to put them all together.

Until next time
Happy stitching

Paula

Lovely little blue flower! The pink fabric is just beautiful and a nice finish with the half hexies. I like the idea of a border with appliqued flowers too. Very, very nice Paula! And, how sweet is your May block and just one more to go!!!
