Grandmother's Garden Hexagons

For a couple of years now I have been slowly working on my pink Hexagon quilt. I am using 
Kona Bubble Gum pink as my background fabric. I had kind of stopped working on it and now and then I would dig it out but not get much done. Well the other day I figured out why?

I ran out of Pink Bubble Gum hexagons. I needed to find more of the pink fabric. I did not have enough pink hexagons to do the edges so I was struck. I did not want to start putting together the long row with out more on the ends. So it was a Design Day.

So at one end this is all I had figured out. But I know this was not how the edge would be. 

So after preparing more pink hexagons I could lay out this as an end. I think this is how the end of the rows will look. Or maybe one more row? At least I can do more now. I still need more pink hexagons. 

 And the other end of the rows. I have so much more to do and so many more hexagons to prepare. So I am not yet sewing the rows together but I am back at getting some work on it again.

I have added this post to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching.

Here is a photo form 2014, when I was think about what fabric to use for leaves. I had planned to use many different greens. But I did not like it. So I picked out this one lime green hanging on the back. You can see a few other greens to the right side. It was too busy. 
Yes all the fabric is Kaffe Fassett collection except for the bubble gum pink Kona. Well off to do more pink. 

Happy Father's Day


  1. The green print is my favourite Kaffe fabric! Looks great with your pink flowers

  2. Great design working with what you already had sewn...beautiful!

  3. So pretty! I also have that yummy Kaffe fabric in my stash!

  4. What an ambitious project. I love that you are using bubblegum pink. Just the name makes me smile inside.
