    Tell me that it is easier than it looks!
    Actually, Susie, I'm using the quilt patis (plastic reusable templates) and it's really easy! I've done a couple just to see if it's something I can manage. I've got a design, several in fact.... I'll get them scanned and posted to see what you guys think. I've found 4 inch squares on Ebay that I'm going to use, so I don't have to cut up all those squares on my own.

    About halfway down this tut shows them set in a diamond pattern that is pretty neat looking.

    So I've found a pattern and also began drawing two others. I'm going to do the one with the piano key border first to get the hang of things. What 'cha think?

    You could applique some flower pots or baskets and use the hexagons as the flowers.

    A Trip Around The World pattern in your main decorating colors would look nice also.

    Those designs sure are more fun and interesting than the old Grandmother's Flower Garden.
