Grandmothers flower

Just what I needed a new hobby...hexing...english paper piecing. I really enjoy doing things with my hands like stitching, cross-stitching and now hexing. This small quilt used 19 1" hexagons to make the traditional grandmother's flower.

My red flower was so fun to make I made a blue one to use as a gift. I bought a pack of 600 paper hexagons so all summer long I will be hexing here and there and everywhere. We will be in a million hotels.

Today this yummy fabric came in the mail...I have paper to match this too. My first set of movers come on Tuesday but then our fast shipment is being picked up until 12 July so I think I am going to keep my sewing machine out so I can have fun from now until then.

Steve leaves for Korea the first part of August and the kids and I will follow the middle of August.
