Where Flowers Bloom Blog Hop- My Daisy Stop

Welcome to my turn on the Where Flowers Bloom blog hop. A big thank to Carla from Creatin' in the Sticks for hosting us. We must be a handful sometimes. Here is the schedule for today's bloggers. I have included the full schedule at the bottom of my post for you to be able to check out what everyone has created for this blog hop.

I had a plan when I signed up to do this blog hop. I had to factor in the fact I was going to be away all of  May so the plan was to do a combination of machine piecing and English Paper piecing so I could stitch while I was away. Then there would only be a little bit of machine sewing when I got home and write up my blog post.
The easiest choice was the floral fabric I wanted to use. That was Garden Delights by Gray Sky Studio. I have used it a few times recently. So while I was away I managed to stitch up five hexagon flowers. You just have to have hexagon flowers for a flower themed blog hop.
In the end I only used three for my Garden Delights table runner as I was running out of time.
This is what the back of my Hexagon flower looks as I remove the papers before I appliqued them on to the  6 1/2 " background squares. Then added some flower sashing and borders.

A piece of batting, backing fabric  and a little quilting finished my little table runner off.

I admire anyone who can do EPP, it's totally not for me, but I do love seeing what can be done with this popular technique. Beautiful job on your runner.

Beautiful! Isn't that the way it always is...running out of time...or life just getting in the way of having fun?? It turned out lovely though.

I love grandmother's flowers; did you hand sew them using EPP or did you sew by machine. Really cute, either way.

Carol said...

Beautiful! I enjoy projects that I can work on while traveling. Great job!
