    I posted a few pictures of my first English Paper Piecing flower from scraps a few weeks back. I got the idea to use a jelly roll to make flowers! I've had this jelly roll for about a year and had no idea what to do with it - it's the fabric line Odyssea by Momo. I've cut up each strip into squares and am starting to baste the hexies.

    I'm using a fabric by Jim Shore for the center, and for the ring around each hexagon is going to be a white on white paisley. I don't want huge flowers, so I'm only doing the one ring (6 hexies) around the center, then there will be the white on white.

    The first ever hexies made from scraps and will be into a totally scrappy GFG quilt

    I got a bunch of 3x3 baggies from my moms garage - each one has 6 of the same basted hexagon in it to be made into flowers

    how I've been making the flowers - put 3 pieces together, then the next 3, and unfold.

    thank you so much! :) This is really fun - I get to take it everywhere with me. I basted a ton of hexies in the car ride my mom, DH, DD and I took that was 2.5 hours one way! I think this is going to be one of those for me only quilts.

    oh you should! I've been afraid of it for so long, but I've found that it's a ton easier than it looks!

    Thanks! I love the Jelly Roll idea, I know everything will match! :)

    Each of the flowers takes me about an hour from basting to putting into the 6 together. Adding the center takes another 20/30 minutes. I don't even think I want to know how much time is going to go into this quilt, but I am keeping a journal
