HQAL Update

I have had so much fun working on my Grandmother’s Flower Garden!  I love the easy rhythm and relaxation of hand sewing the pieces together.  This is where I was last time:img_3850

In three weeks I was able to:img_4021

Finish the purple flower and:img_4022

Cut all the pieces and start sewing the blue one.  I am a purple person – I love the color purple, but this blue flower is so appealing to me!


I am really enjoying the colors and patterns on these two fabrics!!  My goal for next time is to finish this blue flower and make a red one.  Let’s see if I can get it done!

This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another.  If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.

  1. This seems like a perfect project for you Connie. Small enough to take along, and nice chinks that give you a sense of accomplishment too. Happy sewing!

    • You are so right! I love being able to complete a little bit at a time while waiting a one of my kid’s lessons or while sitting in front of one DH’s shows at the end of the day.

  2. You have been making great progress! I like your idea of making your flower three rows of hexies!! Thank you for sharing!

  5. I’m with you- the blue flower calls to me:)

  6. I know you can, Connie! These look beautiful, and I was trying to decide what size the side measures. I’ll go back and see if you said last time, because I don’t remember anything 5 minutes any more. =)
