I am posting a few closer up pics to answer a few board members questions...I hope this is a start =D This quilt started as a practice piece from scraps that came from a quilt I did for my niece and then grew and grew =D I learned the how-tos from watching videos on YouTube and then just went for it. I have learned along the way and can keep learning. Soon I will be hand quilting it...will be looking for the board to help guide me through that =D

Hexis are a bit larger than a quarter...a good size for beginning. Not to small, but not too big to handle it.

I hand basted the fabric to thick paper hexis with cheep thread (you will be wasting that threads)

And yes...it is hand pieced =D I don't even want to know how many stitches are invested already

I spent a ton of time on YouTube...just put Grandma's Flower Garden in search and learn =D. Or use English Paper Piecing...

So pretty, I have never really even looked up how to do this type of quilt. I will have to check out you tube...It would really be good for taking along in the car to have something to work on...you just baste the fabric onto the paper? I will look up the video. thanks so much, love the colors...
