Hexagon Flowers

I am trying to get back into some of the things in blogland that I was part of last year because I think it helps to keep motivated on some of those long term projects that I've started.

One of those things is One Flower Wednesday sponsored by Karen at Journey of a Quilter blog.  Karen keeps a sign up sheet for those of us that are working on long term hexagon projects.  I've started hexagons in several different "flavors".  Here are the ones that I just finished:



These are some that I made from an older Civil War line called Cocheco...probably from around 2000.



This is a hexagon project that I would like to make but can't quite decide which fabrics to use.  This quilt is from Quiltmania magazine.

 


Also sometime last year I signed up for a Hexagon Charm Quilt piece along at Texas Freckles blog.  Here is the link to the Flickr group.  There is lots of inspiration here.

So for now I'll just keep making hexagons until I decide on a project.   I hope you are finding some time to do some stitching today.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

I love the flowers you just finished LuAnn, the fabric is really lovely. Beautiful civil war flowers, maybe they would be nice for Aunt Sarah?

What a lot of hexagon projects. I can't even get one finished! That one in the magazine is beautiful--very ambitious.

You've motivated me to start doing hexagons every week. I'm using 1" papers and appliqueing my hexes to plain 9" squares. Thanks, Deb

You have a nice variety! I've given up on Aunt Sarah for my quilt. I have a few other ideas rolling around in my head.

Nice hexies, LuAnn. They can be addicting to make, eh? lol. I'm curious what you will decide to do with yours. The quilt in the mag' is really nice. Is that an applique in the center? Pretty!

I love the 'flavors' of your hexies, great colors!

Marti said...

Very nice! I haven't seen those done in dark colors before but I really like them.

Jeanne said...

Love your hexagons! I didn't get into that one, but am making progress on my cheddar bow ties and cleaning my sewing room.

Maureen said...

Your hexagon flowers are lovely! I want to start another hexagon project, but I need to quilt the first one.
I love Quiltmania though it is hard to find. I've thought about subscribing through Amazon, but haven't done it yet. THanks for the great links!

Linda said...

Your hexies are wonderful! I love them. Someday, I will start a hex project.

Dawn said...

Beautiful hexies - love the fabric variety.
Aunt Sarah looks like a 'do-able' size.
Thank you for sharing!

Linda said...

Your flowers are great! I've gotten a few flowers done and I've thought about the one flower Wednesday thing. Now that I know this is a long term thing, I might sign up. I enjoy doing these but don't have a definite pattern in mind. After looking at the Flicker group, it has given me a few ideas. Thanks for sharing.
