One Flower Wednesday



Ok I have never really joined a sew along kind of thing here on the blogs.....but I am going to give this one a try. I like to sometimes have things to work on while I watch tv...which I do to much of anyway. I have sewed my yo yos a few times....but I get tired of them and you can have so many yo yos. I went to my favorite quilt shop the other day and they were putting a quilt up on the quilting machine that had been hand sewn....it was a Wedding Ring quilt. The lady that made it had hand sewn it.....she always does such great work be it either by machine or hand. I have always said I wouldn't do a quilt by hand because I know it would take me the rest of my life to finish it...(OK Gail if you are reading this I know what you are thinking...It will take the rest of my life to machine sew all the quilts I have going now...lol)..... Ok so anyway I have joined the One Flower Wednesday over at Journey of a Quilter. http://journeyofaquilter.blogspot.com/

My goal will be to make one flower every Wednesday. I am going to give it a try.
Here are the first two flowers I did. I have a lot of scraps to use up.



I have also worked on two more and this is the way I will do the rest of my flowers.




I am hoping to make a quilt that will look something like this one


So wish me luck on this flower making....making these hexies have been really relaxing to me. I am also looking forward to seeing all the other flowers that are being made.

I'm wishing you all the luck in the world, but I think you will not even need it: it's just fun tot do and a great little job while watching tv (or something). Like your flowers and your fabrics!

Making one flower a week makes fun and sometimes you suddenly have 2 og maybee even 3 done. Have fun :-)
