My Mom sent me some money for my birthday just days after I set my mind to making a Grandmother's Flower Garden, just after I chose the Country Essentials Breeze collection for the flowers. I picked out the 3/4" hexigons and anxiously awaited my package. It got here in record time and I was able to cut the fat quarters into 2" strips and cut some white fabric into strips. One strip of each I cut into 2" squares. Now I was ready to go.
Day 1 of the actual piecing I managed 3 flowers. I found out that the whipstitch showed through too much for my liking. If I put the pieces right sides together I can do a decent ladder stitch that remains invisible.
But for some reason my creative mojo is lacking in the verbal department tonight. This is not an exciting or entertaining post, just a means to show off the first batch of pics.
The strips rolled up:
The first set of squares:
First 3 flowers:
I am somewhat randomly choosing color combos, one for the middle and one for the petals. I say somewhat because I will try to keep one dark, one light and try to keep colors different. The pathways will be white. Stay tuned for part 2 of the sure-to-be never ending GFG!
