Monday Morning Star Count - 11 New Flowers

I completed 11 new flowers this week to add to the 52 already made. I still don't know the number I need, but I do know it's a lot more. I’m going to have to start joining up the flowers soon so I can free up some of the paper templates.

This is the last week of Jessica's link-up at Life Under Quilts. (She's the author of Quilting on the Go!) You can check out the projects of other bloggers working on English Paper Piecing. Some will be showing their finished pieces.  I have quite a ways to go with my quilt and plan to continue posting my progress on Mondays.

I stitch at the museum each week between my Japanese class and the English classes I teach.  The Art Museum is only a block from the English school.  The Chagal exhibit closed last week and this week the museum was like a ghost town in comparison.

This is my view of the museum grounds as I stitch

QueeniePatch posted about a quilt exhibition she visited in Abbott's Hall at the Museum of Anglian Life with an amazing quilt made of thousands of tiny hexagons.  You can check it out here – it’s the second quilt photo.


  1. Thank you for linking back to my blog! You are so sweet.

    If you want a real challenge, Pamela, you should make a quilt like Michiko Takakuwa does! Tiny hexagons and about 130.000 pieces in a quilt!!! Here are some links
    This lady is a farmer in Hokkaido and only quilts during winter.

  2. Wonderful blue hexies as always.

  3. Wow, your hexies looks very beautiful.
    Thank you for visiting my blog.

    Greetings, Manuela

  4. I'd definitely love to see the hexie flowers put together. I think, the quilt will be fabulous. Maybe it helps to ascertain yourself that it is the process you enjoy...

  5. Those flowers are lovely¡¡¡

    Are you able to stitch with such lovely views?

  6. Your flowers are so lovely in all those blues...looks so refreshing like water...cannot wait to see how you put them together...

  7. I'll miss seeing you on my blog every Monday-- you've made some amazing progress~ keep it up!

  8. I was impressed with the quilt in the museum. Thousands of hexies, oh my! Your blue flowers are much prettier, I think!
