I started this project on December 22nd, with the goal of completing one flower a day. So far I have kept up and I'm even a few ahead. They are 3/4" hexagons made from 30s reproduction prints from different lines like Washtub Club, Storybook collection and the like.
I learned how to make the hexagons from Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville blog (link to her tutorial here) and since I already had the hexagon punch and the prints, I decided to start yet another project! I love her technique because you don't just end up with a pile of hexagons, you actually start sewing them together right away as part of your sewing.
I don't have any idea what it will be in the end, but I'm leaning towards a summer coverlet. I've started grouping the flowers together in groups of nine, each flower represents each colour group that I have. So far, no 2 flowers are exactly the same (out of 40) and I'm going to try to keep that up! To make a twin-size coverlet, I need approximately 30 groups of 9 flowers or 270 flowers so it should take me about 9 months to make them at a flower a day. It sounds way better counting that way than saying I need to sew 1890 hexies.
