Flowers for a Chilly Wednesday

I am still busy with the bug jar quilt, but I managed to find some time to work on my hexies.  I made four more flowers this week. 



These photos were taken outside this morning.  The sun is shining and the temperature will go up to 17C today, but I am sorry to say that these flowers are the only ones still blooming in my garden.  We had night frost a few days ago and everything else has died.


I was also able to prep four more flowers to work on this week.  Those four will complete my hexagon quilt.  It is with ambivalent feelings that I tell you this. I have loved working on this quilt and hate to see it come to an end.  But I am sure there will be more hexies in my future.  (I still have another hexagon quilt with smaller hexies that needs to be completed)  I am not sure how to finish this one though.  The edges are not straight.  I guess I will have to do particial blocks to complete it.  I will post a picture next week when I have all of the hexies sewn together.  Then the experienced flower makers out there can give me some advice. 

Don't you just love this one?
