Loose Threads: Hexagon Flower Basket

Hexagon Flower Basket

I've been doing a bit of applique' on this block and just finished it last night. The hexagons are 1/2", and the curvy leaves are from Paper Pieces.  The package of leaves I have has 2", 3" and 4", and they are called "S" leaves.  The 1/2" hexagons are left over from another project.  When I'm working on a quilt, I usually make extra blocks so I've got a choice of what I want to use.  This block is my own design.  

I've also been making more hexagons.  These are 5/8" hexagons.  The papers I'm using in these are some that I have left over from another project.  I've been on a mission to try and finish up some old projects.  I have a lot of bags and plastic containers with blocks and fabrics in them, and I'm trying to take a realistic look at all of it and decide just what I'm going to finish and what will never see the light of day.  


I think all of these may just end up in the same quilt.  What do you think?


Today is our monthly meeting of English Paper Piecing Addiction Club at Back Door Quilts.  I always look forward to the inspiration that I get from this group.  I have my camera packed.  

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.

I like your hexagon flowers in the basket block very much. It has a prim style look which suits me. Good design.

Love your hexagon flowers. The block is nicely done & a great idea for audition hexies!! You have fussy cutting down to an art.

Very nice little hexies... I'm loving how your are thinking of using it as a center medallion!

An adorable basket is what you got. I agree. The extra hexi flowers would look lovely in the same quilt as the basket. Can't wait to see more of this one. Enjoy your meeting.

I love your little basket quilt. I can definitely see the additional small rosettes in the same quilt. It is so much fun to design as you go and I think you are off to a good start here!

Your design is beautiful!! As are all your hexies. I just got a new book on EPP, so there will be more hexies in my future.
