A Quilt One Day?

I can't stop making these. No, I'm definitely not complaining, as they really are as addicting as Libby told me they would. :-) I really do need to get back to my hand applique - oh those projects are piling up. Actually, I just have a handful of leaves to do on my Country Cousins BOM block #3 but I need to prep all of block #4. It's September and blocks #5 & 6 will be here very, very soon. When I started this BOM I told myself that I would try to stay "on-task" so I'd better get busy.

Thought for today: Keep the promises you make to yourself and others.

Gratitudes: A sluggish day, a lazy day, a quiet day, etc.

Oh, they are are just like potato chips. You think, "I'll just make one little flower to add to my pile." Before you know it, you have the cutest little stack and you can't even stop then.
I love your flowers and I'm just smiling, smiling, smiling ...

Oh, I could just scream, these GFGs are so beautiful, the very bestest fabric group, Darlene! Can't wait to see them assembled.

The colour of your hexagons is beautiful. It will be a great flowergarden when you put them all together. I was too hocked on hexagons and diamonds. I am working on a quilt with diamonds which is tiny tiny bits. I try to use all my samples I used to get from quiltshops. Tryed not to use one fabric twice. This is another of my ufo's that is almost finished, but archived in my boxes. Perhaps I should look at it againg.

Those are so beautiful, I'd find it hard to stop too! Love, love, love those fabrics! YUMMMM!

Beth said...

Well, wait until you have done a couple hundred of them. LOL I have two rows done in a grandmother's flower garden and have probably done at least that many. I'm currently on a hexagon hiatus! LOL

Those are looking wonderful, Darlene--and it sounds like you are having a ball doing them too!

Mary said...

These are cute - I almost bought a book in Joann's the other day that had a bunch of non traditional patterns for grandmother's flower garden blocks - I wish I'd bought it now.

Dawn said...

Oh these colors are so me! I love them! I can't wait to see what you do with them!
