Here’s the start to kiddo #4′s quilt. I’m using Inklingo, and each hexagon measures 2″ per side. The flowers are huge. The colors coordinate with her two big sister’s quilts, but the design is much different. You’re probably wondering why each flower is missing a petal. I didn’t mess up, but did that on purpose. Once I’ve got the layout done, most of them will get their last petal. Some will have something else. You’ll just have to check back and find out what that something else is But you know I couldn’t make just a plain old grandmother’s flower garden quilt. If this works, it may be a new pattern soon.
I’m having so much fun with the big hexagons and bright prints. So far, I’m piecing this one entirely by hand. It’s not taking as long as you might think. I got eleven flowers done in a single day. I like the simplicity of hand piecing. It’s so much easier to put down when the kids need something, or to take along to work on while I’m in the waiting room at the doctor’s office.
I hope you’re enjoying spring weather, or at least the start of a bright new project. Happy Easter!
