I managed to complete a few hexagon flowers as we traveled to Yellowstone last week.
I thought I would get many more done while in the park, but I enjoy the view far too much to be bent over hexagons.
So these few were completed on the road to and from.
Here's my favorite.
I use 1" hexagons that I make from hexagon graph paper printed here. I just change the hexagon size to 1" and then print on cardstock. I like to punch a hole in each paper piece for easy removal later. For 1" hexies, I use a 2.5" square of fabric. See a little tutorial here for how to create the hexies. And then I just whipstitch them together into a flower shape.
If I get enough of these, I think that I will applique them onto a quilt rather that create a traditional Grandmother's Flower Garden where every flower is sashed with neutral hexagons . . . my patience for hand-piecing does not extend that far.
These are quick little finishes that I plan to take camping and to swimming lessons and such this summer.
