My Garden is Growing.

Well my little Hexie garden is slowly growing...
They are just sooo cute! I want them for the border of this scrappy Grandmothers Flower Garden quilt ( I apologise for the lack of ironing and presentation)that has been a UFO for a very looonnng time! Because of this it has been a little challenge trying to find bits of fabric that tie in with the look of the original flowers. Luckily I still had lots of little pieces of the golds from the originals for the flower centres.
I still cannot believe that I stitched all those hexies when I look at it. I always wanted a quilt like this one. It took me years to finish it. Well yes I know it is not ACTUALLY finished but you know what I mean.  Do you have a favourite quilt design that you always wanted to do? What to do on the border had been holding me back but I feel like I may actually get somewhere now the choice is made.
I have also been trying to do some hand quilting each day....
I find it has a very meditative quality to it and boy have I needed a lot of that lately!
I wish you all a lovely day.
Namaste and blessings,
Michelle xxx

  4. Such pretty little flowers. I agree that projects can be put aside because you can't decide on the next step. Who knows when that next burst of inspiration will come. Sounds like there is a finish in the near future.

  13. so love your hexie quilt and the little baby ones around the border will look fantastic.
    I understand that feeling you spoke of. I think I felt the same when I made my hexie quilt and hand quilted it too. I was over the moon. Still love to admire the flowers in it.

  19. Great Quilts (like fine wine ) have to mature and always take time. Your quilt is a beauty Michelle.

  21. Well done on continuing to work on this one Michelle... such an item is a once-in-a-lifetime make, so for it to take a few years is fair enough, I reckon!
