    Grandmothers Flower Garden

    Does anyone have the site that sells the paper hexes for the flower garden pattern? I know I saw it someplace the other day and now can't find it. Thanks.

    I did GFG with paper piecing several years ago and purchased mine from someplace in the state of Washington. Forgot where. But if you google English Paper Piecing you get lots of hits with places to purchase the hexes. Its a nice take along project to do. Finally finsihed mine and hand quilted it.

    You are very welcome. I need to get back to my GFG. Sometimes I get bored and move on to something else, but Ive got enough done that I can start putting them together, maybe thats what I will do. Its a great project to do while watching TV with Hubby.. btw...I love their site. Lots of pics too enjoy and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

    Why don't you try making your own. That's what I do. I find the size of hexagon I want and then make several copies of it. Then I cut squares of freezer paper a little larger than the hexagon and make stacks of about 5 or 6 squares. Place one of your printed hexagons on top of each stack and staple through them all right in the middle. Now cut out the hexagon through all layers, remove the staple, and there you go. You can easily cut through that few layers and the staple in the middle keeps them from shifting. Plus you've saved some cash that can be used for more fabric!
