One Flower Wednesday Loving English Paper Piecing

This week's flower:
Hmm, my screen shows the center hexi fabric a tad on the blue side, but it really is more of a lilac, less of a lavender color.  Occasionally, the Ralph Laurenish ribbon fabric lines up where the hexi's meet giving the illusion of a continuous line.

Here in this neck of the woods, we are gearing up for our first quilting Shop Hop with 8 stores participating. The stores are a bit far ranging: one is @ 25 minutes southeast of there, another is @ 40 miles northwest.  Since I can be a very lucky girl, I'm going to try my best to make them all because of the possible prizes: a Bernina 430, Baby Lock Sohia II, Janome Sewing Machine, or a Sizzix Big Shot cutting machine... any one of these would be a well loved tool in my home!

Happy stitching... and if you too are going to be on the road... Travelling Mercies!
