Flower Day.

On reflection i wasn't happy with the spread of blues through the Flower Garden top or the fact it was ending in a 9 bloom row. Out came the scrap basket & i made another 10 blooms last week. This addition gave me room to spread the blues a bit further around as well as making the last row a 10 bloom row.

Those 2 flowers there are purple. Found the cute apple print fabric & thought it would look good in amongst the blooms.
 Last night i finally got a chance to sew more hexagons to the 2 rows i'd done weeks ago.
Side view &
long view. I think i'll be making half flowers to add to the rows of 9 blooms. or maybe edge the top with more of the stepping stones. Any suggestions?

Happy Stitching,

It's gorgeous! I think adding stepping stones like you mentioned would be great.

Love your flower garden! I make them with brown stepping stones,and half flowers. But your idea of stepping stones on the edge is a good idea too!

Both are good ideas. I Think I would go for the stepstones. Love your apple-flower!

Beautiful so far, will be looking forward to seeing your progress. I like the idea of stepping stones around the edges.

Narelle said...

10 flowers in one week, that's one healthy and beautiful garden :)
Both ideas would look good on your 9 bloom rows but I lean towards half flowers.

Wendy said...

Oh that's coming together great! I'm facing some of the same decisions as you now that I'm sewing mine together.

Allie said...

You are a wonderful gardener *g* - your flowers are beautiful!

You can do both, depending on what look you want it to have. You could take a picture of the top without steppingstones and crop it so it has a straight edge, that way you can see how half flowers look and you can just take a bunch of stepping stones and lay them next to the top in a fashion that makes the edges straight and take a picture of that too. If you put those pictures next to each other it will be easier to compare your options and perhaps easier to choose.
(I am going to do half flowers)
