But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. ~ Isaiah 40:31, NLTYes, I'm here for "One Flower Wednesday." It's that day of the week when we all post our hexie flowers. I keep seeing great ideas for quilts with hexie flowers. There's a group working on a "Hexy MF Quilt-Along" that looks interesting. So right now I'm working on my landscape hexie quilt with the block of my little ranch house in it, I got all excited about the optical illusion hexie quilt, I started the 1/2 inch little flowers for whatever I'm planning with those little flowers, and now this. I think that I just like the hexie flowers so much that I get all excited every time I see another idea. Here I have a photo of the 1/2 inch petals I've made while in California, along with two more little flowers completed.
Then, yesterday I went to the wonderful "Quilters' Paradise" shop in Clovis, California. Yes, of course I bought some fat quarters and some little 1/2 cardboard template thingies for making more petals.
There are a couple of civil war fabrics, ok, maybe 4. The others just caught my eye. You know how easy that is to do with fabrics. I've ordered a fat quarter bundle from Connecting Threads of the "Grassland Prairie" like the one in my recent giveaway and I am now a member of a fat eighths club for Civil War Fabrics so I'll have fabrics waiting for me when I return to El Paso so I don't need to be buying more fabric.
That is all. (I need to be saying that about my fabric purchases too. I need to join that "Stash Report" group and be doing something about all the fabric I already have....
