The Hexagon Project: Blocks 25 and 26

I didn’t make as much progress as I would’ve liked with my English paper piecing project this month, but I still made progress. Two more hand sewn hexagon flower blocks are done, bringing the total up to 26.

If I’m remembering correctly, even though I’m using all scrap fabric, the yellow block is the first EPP block to have a scrappy look. While the overall colors and values are similar, two of the hexies in the outer ring are a different print than the rest. There will be more blocks like this as I use up various fabrics.

I like that the red and blue block has an Americana look, in contrast to the 1930s reproduction look of the yellow block. I can’t wait to see all of the blocks come together — and, yes, I’m still planning to separate the flower blocks with pink sparkly hexies.

This Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt is going to be amazing!
