One flower wednesday

I know it is not Wednesday yet, but tomorrow may be too busy to post, and I'm ready now!  I had planned on making all my flowers with yellow centers, but the stripe fabric was crying out for another color.  So it has to be in a totally different quilt, right? Also, the fabric is a different weight, so I have definitely started two quilts, not one.  That works out well, my son and daughter will each get one this way.  I have not perfected my hexie folding technique, they are slightly different sizes no matter how hard I try.  I will keep trying!  it is too much fun to quit. View other beautiful hexies and tips on how to make them at Karen's blog http://www.journeyofaquilter.blogspot.com/

I love the way the striped hexie looks, I have another colorful fabric selected for next week.

Cute hexie-flowers, Brenda. That stripey one is stunning set like that. Looks like you'll be doing hexies for a while - making two quilts - but they are so addictive I know you'll enjoy it!

Great flowers and very brave to start making two quilts! Now is the question: will your daughter get the striped hexies, or your son?
