I love the colours in the mug rug/hot pad(am yet to decide if its a mug rug or a hot pad). The yellow, I think, looks lovely in the afternoon sun and the hexagon flower is one from my collection that would have made it to the grandmother’s flower garden quilt.

I quilted the background first, with batting and backing…a new technique for me and am glad the lines turned out all parallel to each other. The flower was the last to get added, completing it with a white border…wanted the border to be subtle so the flower would stand out, not the border !

This makes me feel how the simple paper pieced hexagon flower can be so versatile. So am back to my paper piecing of white hexagons to complete the grandmother’s flower garden quilt. It required almost 600 white hexies and I am around 100 at present.
