Coming Along on the Hexie Quilt.

After appliqueing all the hexagon flowers, stems and leaves to the blocks,  I added a green strip on the side of each one.  The applique went fast.  Now I have pressed and trimmed all the blocks and cut long strips strips from the background fabric to go between the rows. 
This is kind of how it will be - there will be room for some pretty quilting between the rows of flowers.  I'm liking this very much.   I have to make two more flowers as I will be making five rows of six each.  Twenty-eight are finished.  (Click to enlarge)

That looks really beautiful, I like it a lot. And the batiks are perfect for this project!

Boy I must say you sure can fancy up and modernize English Paper piecing, Carol. You are the best. A long arm quilter is sure to fill those white spaces with wonderful design.
