"Around My Flower Garden" a strip-pieced hexagon quilt
I have always loved the look of hexagon quilts such as "Grandmother's Flower Garden" but piecing all those little hexies by hand did not really appeal to me. To be honest I don't think I would ever finish it. Here is where I admit that I have a somewhat short attention span. I designed this quilt to have that look without all the time consuming hand piecing. The center of this quilt is done by strip piecing triangles together to form the hexagon look. I did hand piece the small outer flowers using no-melt template plastic to stitch the individual small hexies, then appliqued them onto the quilt.
