    It reminds me of looking down onto my grandma's flowerbed from the upstairs bedroom window. What a great job you did. The border of the small flowers is such a good idea. It's obvious that you understand "quilt speak".

    I can not wait to see your quilt ! Did you use those hard plastic templates that you sew together and pop out of fabric??

    I love the boldness of the quilt. It must have had a very forceful voice. It reminds me of something from the "flower power" era. I just started cutting hexagons for a new quilt. I found a site for free on-line graph paper so I planned the design but not the colors. I want to use up some of my reproduction stash. Wish me luck, it will be hand pieced (I'll be doing the English paper piecing). I know it will take years. I work for a while get bored and put it in a box so it will be a UFO for a while before it gets finished!!!

    Gorgeous quilt! Be sure to let everyone know you are multi-lingual...quiltspeack is a very important language and you understand it very well!

    Guess you could also have named the quilt "Tribute to Flower", its sad how they let us get to know all of those delightful characters and then they have to pass away. Its almost like loosing 1 of my own pets!

    my first thought was "WOW" the flowers really pop with the black and white you choose. It is an awesome job. The more I looked at the more I love it, it is beautiful. great job!!! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :XD:

    Wow, using the black was inspired! It really sets off the other beautiful colors in your quilt. It reminds me of those beautiful paperweights with the mille fleur design in the glass. Well done!

    This is a stunning quilt! I love the black because it makes the flowers pop. I love the way you did the border as well.

    I think your intuition is an artist creating mind. I know artist who will say the painting took over and knew what needed to be done. Awesome work.

    Your quilt is stunning-it reminds me of tiny mosiac tiles. I am glad you listened to your intuition-it really knows it's stuff!!

    Beautiful work! I'm a hexagon fan and a HUGE Meerkat Manor fan. So great to see your quilt pix---can't wait to see more.
    By the way, do you have advice for putting the blocks together?

    Yours is every bit as beautiful. Looks like out minds work the same.
    to answer your question I used freezer paper for the hexagons.j
    Everyone else, thanks and I am not qualified to give anyone advise. This was only my second quilt and I will not suffer the process again.

    That is a great quilt. I started doing mine while watching T.V. too. It ended up being a queen size top. Can I ask you how you finished off the edges? And did you hand quilt the top too?

    I love what you did with the grandmother's flower garden pattern. I love the unique background and love what you did with the border. And you took alot of time fussy-cutting. Really great job. Thanks so much for sharing that.
