Forgive me, but the blog templates are driving me crazy. I wish I could find a simple craft blog template. Until I find one that's easy to use, I'll be changing the format often.
I'm making progress on the Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt, but it's taking forever. So far, I have two full strips (of 10 complete flowers) made (see picture above). I haven't sewn those together yet, but just laying them out gives me an idea of how it's going to look. I measured the width against the comforter on my bed (which may be a queen or a king, I'm not sure - too lazy to get up and check). I'll just keep making hexagons, flowers, and strips and until I'm finished. I've decided to embroider before I machine quilt it, which I've also decided to machine quilt with clear transparent monofiliment thread, so as to not clash with the vibrant embroidery floss. It's still all handmade... whew. I tried sewing the flowers together on the machine, but the corners are too difficult to maneuver, and it's much easier hand sewing it, plus, it's portable, so I can take it anywhere and work on it.
Onward I march, through the garden of hexagons!
