One Flower Wednesdays


I accomplished 12 flowers this week, still finding pink fabric in my stash to work with. It seems I am always in a hurry Wednesdays when I take my pictures. Of course the battery in the camera was almost dead too, so they are not as clear as i would have liked.

Another question - How many of you cut your fabric into hexagons? I cut mine into 2.5" X 2.75" rectangles. Not sure if I will trim the  backside before I sew them all together. I also leave in the stitching on the back.
Only 3 blooms so far for the Christmas Cactus, at least it is true to it's name and I managed to keep it for more than a year. I'll have to try and find another one to buy with more flowers. My trouble is that I like all the colours and can't decide. My mother-in-law had one that was huge but I don't seem to have as much luck with them.

Your hexie garden really grew this week. All of them are wonderful! I am one of those that does cut my fabric into hexagons. I was leaving the stitching on the back but I have begun removing it as I put the garden together.

Wow 12 flowers, well done and they are all so beautiful. I'm doing my hexagons like you do. I leave the stitching on the back but cut away the extra fabric.

You did well this week. 12 beautiful blooms. I cut my fabric into hexagon shapes.

So pretty in pink! Twelve is an excellent number for one week. In answer to your question, I cut my fabric into hexagons. I think if I did it your way I most likely would cut off the extra fabric. Depending on how you are going to quilt it, it may be too bulky.
