How Does My Garden Grow?

Faster than I thought it would!
Yesterday I ordered a new group of fabrics from www.gloriouscolor.com that includes an assortment of dots to use as the centers of each flower.  I am finally comfortable with piecing the hexies and they are a tad more enjoyable.  What motivates me is that my DD is quite smitten with the design so far.

I finished quilting the baby quilt with time to spare.
I used a variegated 40 wt. thread and had fun with some continuous line FMQ.  
Very pleased with the result.  
Now to the binding...my daughter's job!

For me, I better start on those Christmas gifts!

Lovely hexagons Cheryl. Are you enjoying working with those colours? They are a little different to your usual palette.
