One Flower Wednesday
Just today I found Karen´s Blog and read about her Garden Party.
The aim is to sew at least one flower a week and report about your progress on your blog on wednesdays. Just perfect for my unfinished lavender flower garden! So I joined in and immediately began to cut some white hexagons.
Most of my flowers are ready, but I think it was not my best idea to sew the colorful flowers first and leave the white background hexagons for later...so it is a bit boring at the moment. The motivation of this group is maybe just what I need to get it done!
To make it a bit easier I cut stripes of the white fabric first, and then trace my hexagons using a thin wooden template my father made for me. This works very well!
So I hope that all these flowers soon have a white row attached! :-)
And for the other members of this group I want to indroduce myself in a few words:
Hi, I´m Steffi, I live in Germany and I am quilting for 15 years. I love to sew and quilt by hand, but I also do some machine work from time to time.
I absolutely love 1930s quilts and fabrics and I am collecting 30s reproduction fabrics for over 10 years now. Most of my stash are 30s repros, and I have a few quilts out of them in progress. (and a few finished that you can see in the little slide show on the right of my blog)
This lavender flower garden will be my second hexagon quilt and I am looking forward to finish it! :-)
