One Flower Wednesday... A weekly event!

Karen's One Flower Wednesday is so helpful!  A week can easily slip by if I don't have something to help me keep track.  See more folks' flowers at Karen's wonderful website here:  Journey of a Quilter... and if you have any interest in English Paper piecing... even if you are already doing this technique, check out her page with all the weblinks by clicking on the One Flower Wednesday button.  I love the How-To Hexigon Flowers Part 2 instructions  Link to favorite Hexi instructions.  I probably do too much work, itsy bitsy whipstitches (@ 18-20 per inch) using a buttonhole type stitch (see instructions link above) and knotting at each corner, but the neatness & results front and back give me great pleasure... plus I think it will really hold up over time and use.  Hope your garden is growing!
