One Flower Wednesday, becoming routine

One Flower Wednesday is now part of my routine... a happy part.  I love going to participants' blogs, looking at their truly inspired and exquisite work, reading their captivating thoughts and ideas, admiring their great photos and absorbing their warm kindness.  Here is the link to Karen's wonderful blog where we all post our links... enjoy!

Last night @ Kernersville Bee, two ladies were working on Grandmother's flower garden hexi's.... one using tee nintsy templates... maybe half an inch?  the other using 3/4 inch hexi's.... she said she'll need over 2 thousand hexi's... but then she completed a Dear Jane quilt in a year, so there's no question she'll succeed.  I wish I'd thought to take a picture... next time.

For now, here is my latest flower for my garden: 
I'm venturing into scrappy with a lighter value center & the darkest on the outside.  This will be a lap quilt, so I only need 32 [corrected math!] double-row flowers.  Seven rows: four rows 5 flowers wide and three rows 4 flowers wide and their connectors of course.

Thanks for stopping by & hope your week is a great one.

Pretty flower! I like how the center coordinates with the border fabric.

A beauty Becky!!!! It is hard to imagine over 2000 hexies and finishing a Dear Jane in one year. That is something!
