One Flower Wednesday

So I've stitched my very first hexagon flowers for my very first One Flower Wednesday...


My plan is to use a limited range of green fabrics as the centres, & work towards making them into a quilt to drape over the sofa. I think I'll call this The Quilt Of Forgotten Fabrics, here's the story.





The stitching is so-so, clearly I need a lot of practice, so that the stitches are not visible from the front. But, methinks they aren't too bad as a first effort.

I'm sure I've linked to Journey of a Quilter a bit too early, but I'll get the hang of this OFW thing quickly, I'm sure.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Hello Anthea! Welcome to One Flower Wednesday, I love your first and second flower, and I like the idea of green centers, my favourite colour. And, no they are not too bad as a first effort, they are excellent!

I think that could just be THE perfect name for your quilt :) Your first flowers are looking great. Have to say I have never made a hexie in my life but so love the look of them...maybe one day?

I think your first flowers are great and I loved the story about your "forgotten fabrics". I think many of us have some of those fabrics we purchased because they were just such a good deal at the time or we were planning a project with them that never quite made it past the "planning" stage....I just joined OFW this year and am having a great time....welcome aboard!
