Hexagon Garden Party

Over a year ago, I started a Grandmother's Flower Garden table runner, made up of English paper pieced hexagons.  I blogged about it here and here.   At some point, the project got put aside for other things, mostly because I did most of my stitching in front of the TV at night, and suddenly I found myself with a sleeping puppy in my lap  instead of a needle and thread in my hands.

I have wanted to get back to the project and have found the perfect motivation....One Flower Wednesdays. Karen at Journey of a Quilter came up with the idea of  a weekly goal to make at least one hexagon flower per week, and to post your progress on Wednesdays.   She's calling it a Garden Party and has invited anyone working on a hexagon project to join in.  You can find a link to her post about the project in my sidebar if you'd like to join the party.

  1. Hi Em, So glad to see you are motivated to finish this project. I had grand plans of making a flower garden quilt from scratch but it sadly has been put aside also. I might follow your link, I think a week-by-week goal is a great idea and one that I could follow! Much love, Sam xox

  2. perfect, i have a top from my sister that I can work on, surely I can do one block a week- its not flower garden but I plan to do it by hand so does that count a little? cw

  3. Such pretty blocks. Sounds like a great project.

  4. Hmmm. That sounds like a motivation and I have a hex quilt in progress. But not flowers. I wonder if it would fit in? Lane
