Petunias are popping on WIP Wednesday

My petunias are really popping as I assemble this little quilt. I have the top 5 rows sewn to each other and the bottom 4 rows are ready to join them.


I love how some of the hexagons look like primroses or some exotic tropical flora.



I have enough of the petunia print to make nice sized borders. I'm thinking I'm going to cut them around 8" wide so I can show off the fabric. And I want to include a repeat of the fabric I cut the hexagons from, on the back.


With the larger borders, this is going to be a little bigger than I thought - about 50" X 60". I want to get it together before guild meeting on Monday so I can pass it off to my long arm quilter. I think she'll have my Keypunch with Kaffe quilt done. Can't wait to see it.

I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday. Go check out what everyone else is doing. I always end up finding another quilt idea I want to make!

happy stitching-

  3. This looks amazing Carol! At first I thought it was a One Block Wonder, and it kind of is, but really you have made it a hexie quilt with the addition of the green background triangles. It is really cool!

  5. It's like an I-Spy quilt...I want to look at every combination! I really like the green triangles between the "Flowers." Have always wanted to try one of these but haven't.

  6. Fabulous! Totally see what you mean about how it makes new "flowers", and the leafy green triangles give each block room to shine. I *really* need to try something like this myself some time - it has all the things I love. :)
