One Flower Wednesday Week 10


Well, I am excited to see my garden grow, but now I feel like I want to start to see them joined together.  I've been debating about this a bit.  They are scrappy and I want to ensure they look balanced once put together... So I don't want to start yet.

Still, I have some of the joining hexi's made.  I think I'll start making them each week... but not until AFTER October 17th (the final tax filing date for indiviuals in the US.)  I am an accountant and can hardly do anything but work for the next week and a half.

See all the wonderful hexi's folks are making by visiting Journey of a Quilter where the wonderfully generous Karen hosts us all. I had to laugh, that after writing about having a desire to start joining my hexi's several of the posts showed how they are joining theirs!  One person had just this week started that process, so I guess I am right on time.


Hope all's well in your neck of the woods!

Beautiful hexie flower. You're way ahead of me if you're contemplating a quilt layout. I'm still just making flowers.

LOvely flower, very nice colours.
So far I'm making only flowers but soon I would have to join them and it is so boring....

Love your flower.
I am also still making flowers.
Still have not found a payyern I wish to do.

Beautiful flower, I've been joining mine also. It was a difficult decision about the layout, there are so many choices to make, to use a pathway or not and what colour. I like your double flowers.

Beautiful!!! Best to take a little time and think about your layout before you start.

It can be hard to see in your head how it's going to look when you're making and sewing as you go along. I've done it both ways. For one garden, I had all the flowers made up first but for the other, I'm adding as I go along. Looking forward to seeing your garden. I'm sure it'll be beautiful when it's done.
