Monday Morning Star Count - Just Like Snowflakes

No two flowers will be alike.  I’ve started making piles of flowers with the same petal fabrics, so that I'm sure to make the inside fabrics of those flowers different.  So far I have 18 different petal fabrics and a few more than that on the insides of the flowers because I had some small scraps of fabric that weren't big enough to get six hexagons out of them.  I have 52 flowers made and I still don’t know how many more flowers I need to make a quilt. Check out everyone else's epp projects and learn how you can join in at Life Under Quilts.

  1. Looking good! There are no two blue shades alike in this quilt!

  2. Beautiful! A field of wonderful blues waiting to be picked (or sewn together). I love the element of not knowing how many you need, or when to stop. How are you planning on putting them together? Must go to sleep -- then face writing my own Monday morning post that won't report huge progress, alas... but I'll face that tomorrow evening. Happy stitching! JJ

    1. I don't really know how I'll put them together, but I'll have to think about it soon because I need to reuse these paper hexagons (or buy more).

    2. I know that feeling! I just ordered some more to delay the decision... Procrastinating masquerading as creative process, in my case, probably! But it's fun to see the pile grow. Keep going! JJ
