Back from a Breather

Sorry for the long absence.

My last post was the first part of December and with the busyness that comes with the holidays, I had decided to take a short break until the chaos had ceased.  I believe that every blogger takes a little down-time from time to time.  Before I knew it, it was already half way through January!

So I told myself that I had to come back.  Too much time had passed already and I need to get back into the blogging routine again.

Currently, I'm starting a hexagon (grandmother's flower garden) quilt.  I had seen a photo of this particular quilt but I don't remember where I had seen it.  It may have been on pinterest or flicker.  It even looked as if they had used the same fabrics as mine!  I had fallen in love with the quilt and I would acknowledge the quilter if I knew who had created the original quilt from those photos.

I had used the Nancy Halvorsen fabric scraps from two of the quilt-tops that I'm working on (they are almost finished!!).

I had initially purchased the fabric for the Bee Attitudes quilts (I'm naming mine Jordan's Lessons) and used those scraps in my Reminiscence quilt.  And now, with the little bit of fabric that I have left,
I'm using it with another quilt.

I am planning on making two flowers with each fabric. Each flower will have a different center so that each one will not be identical.

This will not nearly be enough to complete the size that I am wanting, so I'm looking forward to visiting the quilt store and getting more Nancy Halvorsen fabrics!!

I'll post more details of my new quilt soon.  I still have to post some projects that I had worked on during my hiatus.
