150 Flowers!


I can't believe it! I'm done sewing flowers together.


I now have 150 unique flowers, there are no two flowers made from the same fabric, that's 1050 hexagons! And I have made 330 of the white spacer hexagons as well. Yep, that is 150 unique 1930's prints in this quilt! I love looking at this stack!
And now, it's on to the scary part! Assembling the quilt top. YIKES!


Even more yikes, they are way bigger than I expected them to be. Holy cow, this quilt will be HUGE!


Would you like some fries with that?

What a beautiful bunch of flowers, Jeannette! It's almost a pity sewing them together (lol). And not one the same! Amazing!
Have a nice day, Cisca

Mouthwatering...this pile of flowers!

I had such a good time reading your blog and especially when it came to the holy cow part (we do not have expressions that cute) ... your flowers are really very big ... you canbuild a tent with it once you're finished :-)

I'm only on my 2nd flower so I'm quite envious of your flower stack. Can't wait to see the finished product!

Amy Sorensen said...

Oh. My. Gosh.

I am exhausted just looking at that pile!

Exhausted and impressed! I can barely get my squares straight, I'm nearly hopeless at triangles, and hexagons? Not going to happen in this house! ;)

Can't wait to see the rest of your progress!
