One Flower Wednesday

I am excited to have joined One Flower Wednesday hosted by Karen.  The idea is to post finished hexagons finishing at least one each Wednesday.  I've just joined so I'm posting some of my latest finishes with more hexagons waiting to be sewn together.  Here are several of my hexagons.

Years ago I made a number of VERY LARGE hexagons and I found them a few days ago while cleaning out a box of UFOs in my sewing room.  Each flower is 16 1/2 inches across and is hand sewn without using paper templates.  These have to be 25 years old as I made them while sitting outside watching my younger daughter riding her tricycle and playing outside (she is now 28 years old!!)  Guess I've loved hexagons all my life!   Pardon the wrinkles...I didn't press them before taking the pictures.  I think I'll have to sew them together and make a table topper or small quilt. 

Thanks, Karen, for the encouragement to finish a new hexagon each Wednesday.  

Many blessings and a happy stitching day to all.
