This is the post I did yesterday for One Flower Wednesday but when I went to post it the internet was down. Upon investigation we discovered a delinquent mouse had decided to feast on the phone wire. So pretend it's Wednesday...
One Flower WednesdayI am a member of fabulous Jane's Inchy Hexagon Flower swap. I have asked for flowers in reds and pinks. Yesterday I decided to start sewing them together. Here is the result.
In the background you can see my favourite kitchen tablecloth. It is a cheater fabric of Granny's Flower Garden. I've also got one of stars. Sneaky me. From a distance it looks like I've pieced my tablecloths but really they were $3 a metre at Spotlight.
Every week lovely Karen at Journey of a Quilter gives us the chance to share the hexie flowers we've made. Pop over and visit Karen for One Flower Wednesday, take a look at the flowers and maybe share a few you've made.
Another Giveaway...I'm also a member of Quilting Block Swaps Australia organised by sensational Sue. This group has just reached over 100 followers and is having a giveaway to celebrate. Pop on over, join in the competition and take a look at what everyone has been making.
