I made half a dozen of these little flowers using half-inch hexagons. To give an idea of the size of them, there’s a nickel in the middle of one. I think I may alternate between these tiny ones and some made with the 1″ hexagons as I do have an idea for a small quilt using those as well.
Just to show the difference in size, this are some 1″ hexagons with the same nickel:
I really like working with .75″ hexagons as well so think I’ll print some fabrics to make a few of those. If I’m doing One Flower Wednesdays, I may as well have a variety of sizes.
This week has turned out to be different than I anticipated. I wasn’t expecting to be as busy as I have been. As a result, I’m not getting around to blogs as much as usual nor have I responded to comments for a day or two. Once today is over, then I’ll get caught up!
We had another absolutely glorious day on Wednesday. Lots of sunshine. Now I know it’s truly getting warm out there. Some of the sun worshippers in the building were out on the roof garden Wednesday afternoon in their bathing suits. That is a first — I don’t ever remember anyone being able to do that here this early.
Lester was busy on the windowsill watching as the gardener was out there adding soil to the flower beds.
Smudge looks rather pensive in this shot, I think.
