Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt in Progress

Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt in Progress

Dear Friends and Readers,

You may remember sometime back I shared with you my hexagons. This is the link to the post.

Hexagons Charming Free and Easy

That project has been on the backburner for a while as I was enjoying working on these Periwinkle Blocks.

Periwinkle Block Made Easy

How nice it is to have hand sewing on the go as a portable project.  I have previously written a post about the benefits of having a hand piecing project on the go, you can read in the next link. I’ve updated it with a great sewing tip from my friend Ellie M. Please check it out here….

While We Wait

Anyhow…. It is time to revisit the hexies!  I’m carrying them around with me.  The aim is to achieve that 1930’s Art Deco type of look. It’s very easy on the eye and it just looks “happy” to me – and that’s always a good thing, a little happiness, don’t you think?

Here are some the flowers coming together.  They are whip stitched together, with a locking stitch every few stitches, so that they don’t come undone.  The flowers are made with 2″ hexagons so the results are quick! 😀

And this how they are coming together.  They will be joined together with plain white hexagons.

Still a long way from finished. But still…….every stitch helps.

If you have considered making a Grandmother’s Garden Quilt, but have not embarked because it’s hand sewing, this style of project might suit, because it’s not as overwhelming as one made with very small hexagons.

Happy stitching,

Susie
