One Flower Wednesday....in the snow!

Today is One Flower Wednesday over at Journey of a Quilter blog.  Up until a couple of weeks ago, I thought One Flower Wednesday was something that just sounded good when you said it.  One night I was reading blogs, and I happened onto this blog where you can go and sign in if you have made hexagon flowers. 

Here are the three flowers that I made today.    I really prefer to take photos outside just because they always look brighter and better overall than the ones I take inside.  We've had snow on the ground here for what seems like forever, so I put on my winter coat and waded out back and took my photos on the deck.  This is the second photo that I took.
Below is the first photo that I took.  I just tossed the hexagons down onto the snow and took the photo.  After I got back inside and warmed up, I downloaded the photos to my computer. They looked like they were taken on a white table except for the little bit of snow you can see on the orange flower. So...... I put the winter coat back on and went outside to take more photos. 
Here's a photo of the woods out back with snow on the ground.  I never get tired of looking out there, and I really enjoy walking around in the snow and listening to the crunching under foot.  The woods are always so quiet and peaceful after a snow. 
 My niece, Angela, is learning to quilt.  She has just finished her first quilt top and is getting ready to machine quilt it.  She came down to visit over the weekend, and brought me this pillow that she made.  I love the white trim around the outside that looks like tiny snowballs.  Since it has a snowman on it, I'm going to keep it out to enjoy it for awhile.
I hope you are all finding some time to do some stitching today!!!  Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Love your bright and pretty flowers on the snow :)
It is hard to believe the stark contrast we have in weather conditions!
We are experiencing a heat wave here....it has been the equivalent of between 105 and 110 farenheit.
And then......look at all your beautiful snow!!

I have never worked with hexegons, but these look lovely. Also, I have something for you over at my blog.

You hexies are looking nice. I had not thought of alternating the petals but it really adds some charm to the block.

Lovely flowers in the snow. They add a ray of sunshine to the chill of the winter.

Isn't it great to know the next generation is quilting, too?

Love the hexagon flowers. They are so fun to make.

What a neat setting for your lovely hexie-flowers!! How fun to have a family member to help to learn to quilt - she's done a great job on the pillow too. Have a nice day,Raewyn

Hola Luann,te eplico como hacer los exagonos se corta un exagono,otro de boata igual y un tercero dos centimetros mayor.Ponemos el exagono mayor con el derecho hacia abajo encima bien centrado la boata y el otro exagono con el derecho hacia arriba,doblamos un centimetro y despues el otro asi todo alrededor como si hiciesemos un dobladillo y cosemos todos los lados a punto escondido, que nos quedaria con el ribete y acolchado. espero que me hayas comprendido,un abrazo desde España.
