Back to Long-Term Projects: Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt

Do you guys remember my New Year’s Resolution? Less Projects, More Often. (Which I suppose is grammatically shady, it really should be Fewer Projects, but then you don’t have that cool less/more thing going on.) It’s really been working for me – finishing up projects that have been lingering for a long time and not just going out and starting twenty more.

For one thing, it’s allowing me to spend some time with my beloved long-term projects, which always had to be put aside for the million other WIPs in the basket. It’s been such a long time since I posted about (or even worked on) my 1930s reproduction Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt, most of you have probably never even seen it! But I’ve finally gotten it back out and I’m up to a whole 33 flowers sewn! By my last estimate, that makes me about halfway finished – with the flowers, anyway. I’ll have to stop procrastinating and start surrounding them all with a million white hexagons pretty soon – and diamonds if I decide to put a little path between them all.

In the meantime, I’ve put together this little travel EPP box, which contains everything I need to work on my hexies. It’s perfect to just toss in my bag for train rides and pub nights – and even has a teensy-tiny pincushion inside!

    This is wonderful! I’m planning on making a grandmother’s flower garden quilt, also. I have the one my grandma made that’s rather worse for wear, which means it was loved and used a lot.

    I’ve started a whole load of EPP hexies just because I like having something to do while in the lounge with the family and thanks to you I now know what I’m going to make with them :D

    Your hexie flowers are really lovely. I am considering to start a grandmother flower garden, too. Maybe you could tell me what size of hexagon you use. Thanks.
