And it just might take a year to finish this one but I hope not. I have always wanted to make a Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt and when I saw this fabric from Fig Tree I knew it would be perfect.
Ok, so I'm not actually making an entire quilt. I thought I'd start out with a table topper. Honestly though, I have loved every minute of working on this. I love that I can take it with me anywhere to work on. At first I thought it would take forever, but once I got the hang of it, it started going along pretty fast.
It was perfect to take on me and my husband's little trip to Las Vegas. I do have to admit, I did get a few strange looks while working on it at the Las Vegas airport. Geez, don't people sew or quilt in Vegas? At least I came hope with all my money, AND some pretty flowers.
I have to admit, I'm not completely sure I'm doing in right. I've seen some blogs where the thread is on the other side of the hexagons so I'm starting to wonder. This method seems to be working good for me though so I think I'll stick with it.
I hope you all had a fantastic New Year. Can't wait to see some of your projects for 2012!
