Hexie Transformer

I sewed my hexies together for the June hexie blog flower last night.  But I didn't have the layout for it.  And I sewed it wrong.  The stem at the bottom would not have come out straight.  If I wanted it to turn out like the one on the hexie blog, I would have had to undo many hexies and anyone who does these things knows how difficult it is to rip them out without shredding the rest of the blocks.  So I redesigned it and now it will be appliqued to a background fabric and made into another outdoor pillow.

I liked the colours because I have lots of purple flowers in my garden right now.  Here are some Sweet Williams.

And this is the Hydrangea that I planted in the spring.  My first Hydrangea flower.  Am I ever proud!  It is one of those lacy ones.

Hope everyone has a terrific weekend!  We are going out to the Mandarin to celebrate my husband's birthday tonight.  It's a long weekend for some of us.  Canada Day is on Tuesday.  Some folks are taking Monday off too.  Every day is Canada Day for me!

I am linking up with Angie at A Quilting Reader\s Garden

Lovely flower! It's fun to see everyone's version. I'm still sewing on mine.

Sounds like a good save. Enjoy your meal. Haven't been to Mandarin in years.

Your hexie is awesome. We call ooopsie, "a different kind of right.".

I really enjoy you pictures of your flowers.

Hopping over from a Hexie Weekend. Such pretty colors for your hexies!

I love your hydrangea. Hopefully we'll both get more than just the one (not looking very promising here).
