One Flower Wednesday

Here it is Wednesday already!  I have added one more flower to the garden -

Wow!  It comes across a lot brighter in my browser than it is in person.  I sure do enjoy stitching hexagons together.

Sunday, I made this ensemble.  It was fun to make and is real handy to keep my tools together and close.  I still need to sew a button on the thread catcher for hanging from the tool pouch.  I used three fat quarters from Judie Rothermel's Nottingham Village fabric line.  I love the fabric!  I made my tool pouch a little smaller than was in the pattern.  The pattern called for 23" and since I used a fat quarter, I made the tool pockets a little shallower.  It works out just fine.

My Tiny Triangles mini quilt is finished, too.  I have this large blank wall that will be covered with various quilts, stitcheries, etc.  

Tiny Triangles Mini Quilt

I started cutting fabric for another mini quilt from the same pattern booklet.  

Thank you to everyone for all the sweet comments!  I have some catching up to do.  :)

Summer finally hit us here in Southern California.  Up until a couple of days ago, my area of Orange County was still quite cool and comfortable.   My husband and I will drive up to No. California to visit our twin granddaughters!  They are 4 months old; I haven't seen them since they were 6 weeks old.  So looking forward to it!

Have a great day!

I love your neat mini quilt with it's antique look.

You flower in mint is also great. The fabric of the petals is very interesting and I bet one can make quite a few hexagonflowers, all looking different, from that one fabric!

That's a lovely hexie-flower, Vickie. The mini quilt is also great - what size are the triangles? They look very tiny. And I also like the fabric you have used for your 'ensemble'... you have been busy!
