Klosjes, Honey Bees and Flowers


45
Klosjes Completed
11 made last week


One Flower Wednesday
32 of 92 made

My goal last week was to get back on track with my hexagon flowers. I decided that Wednesday would be the day of the week I would make at least one flower. Afternoon tea seemed like the perfect time to do so. Ends up, last Wednesday, I had time to piece together two flowers during tea and I made a third one in the evening. Valentina and Jan are also going to set aside time on Wednesday's to work on their flower gardens.

Block 12

And my fourth Civil War Bride block is now complete.  Would you believe it has over ninety pieces in it? 

Until next time.....happy quilting!

Karen, your Klosjes and flowers are beautiful! I would love to join you on sewing a flower on Wednesdays. What a wonderful idea! Your Civil War Bride block is stunning! Threadbear is my favourite shop to buy fabric (it is about 40 minutes drive from me) and I bought the CWB pattern when it first came out, I have not started yet!!!! I am looking forward to seeing more of your blocks, the quilt is absolutely gorgeous. Ann ~ Australia.

Your quilting projects are amazing! I am especially impressed with this Civil War Bride block...
I just started sewing/quilting & am working on a quilt for my mom with Dresden Plates! Do you have any of those???

Karen said...

Dear Miss Caitlin,

Sorry I was unable to reply to you by e-mail, but you are coming up 'no-reply.' This means you need to add your e-mail address to your Blogger profile. In answer to your question, I have made two Dresden quilts and I hope to make more. I love them!! Enjoy your sewing/quilting journey.
