It's Flowers on Wednesday Time!

Day 3 of Blogtoberfest.

Click on the icon on my sidebar for more information.


We had a perfect fall day yesterday.  The temperature was around 20C and the sun was warm and inviting.  I sat in my backyard and read a book.  I had wanted to do that all summer, but it was too hot to sit outside and read.  As I glanced around at my garden, I was happy to see that there is still a lot of colour out there.


I also have a section of hexies to show you.  This part goes on the top, above the basket I showed you last week.  There will be a similar section for the bottom of the quilt.  It meant that I had to make white hexies all week, but it really wasn't too boring.  Hexagons are fun to do no matter what colour they are.  I think it also has a lot to do with the layout.  Trying to figure out where the white hexies were supposed to go was an interesting challenge.

After seeing all of your color I think I need to plant some nice fall blooming plants. I only have purple right now.
Your hexie quilt is going to be very striking.

So many lovely colors in your garden.
What book are you reading?

I am very curious to see where this quilt is going! I can't figure out these borders at all, lol! I love the colours though, so I'm sure it's going to be great. :)
