One-Flower Wednesday and My Jane L-8 and M-2

Encouraging words of the day:


But Lord, be merciful to us, for we have waited for you. Be our strong arm each day and our salvation in times of trouble. ~ Isaiah 33:2, NLT

We are in hot, hot California visiting our daughter and family. Everyone is saying we brought the hot, hot weather with us from Texas. Maybe that's what happened. Still, it is beautiful here and we're having a wonderful time visiting with our daughter, SIL, and grandson, not to mention our granddogs.

Last weekend I saw a beautiful GFG quilt top at an estate sale. They were asking $300 for it and it was worth every bit of that but completely out of my budget. It was made of 1/2 inch hexies and just gorgeous, just gorgeous enough to make me want to try sewing a half-inch hexie flower for One Flower Wednesday. I was able to work on my hexie flower while sitting in different airportre. Here it is alongside two hexie flowers I made for my "Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap" partner so you can see how tiny it is.


These are a couple of pink "My Jane" blocks I've completed. Both of them were easily paper-pieced. They are NOT crooked. That's the fault of the photographer (me).

M-2

Ok, I'm off on a trip to the farm and a picnic.

That is all.

Love your little hexie! I've made a couple of table toppers with smaller hexies, and they're fun to work with! Are you hooked?

I love the fabric on the first block--these inspire me to get busy on the four DJ blocks I have cut out. The little hexie flower is so cute--one day I will try one of these tiny ones.
