    I have just learnt in the last couple of months how to do Grand Mother Garden! Since then my life hasn't been the same:) and my husband feels neglected.. :) Lucky for me he knows how to cook and all the children have left home.This is part of it and i hope to show this quilt as i go along. I have also made some place mats. Happy Quilting to all.

    Those little hexagons are so addictive. I bring mine with me when I have to wait somewhere. So much fun to hand sew.

    capucine, so glad you joined the club! And yes, they sure are addicting. Your garden is looking beautiful. What size hexies are you using? I really like your beige/brown "paths"

    What a tremendous amount of work! It looks great already. Can't wait to see it finished! I simply can't imagine hand sewing all of those little pieces!

    Your doing wonderfully. My next project will be the Hexagon. I have a couple of pictures I found in magazines and on this board and want to experiment. With the holidays only 5 months away I need to speed up on my projects.

    Have fun.
