hexie flower #1

well, I have quite a few hexies basted (they are fun to do with the Sewline glue stick!), and now I have one single hexie flower sewn together.  I stitched it together with my grandmother's silk thread and the stitches are almost completely hidden, love it!

I have my hexies arranged in this box now in groups of 7 (6 coordinating petals and a center).  I do have a few dozen more done that aren't matched up into flowers yet.  I got a REALLY good deal on a sampler pack of Moda's mini-charms, so I'm going to use those all up and then see how many flowers that makes.  I think I might sew each flower onto a larger background hexagon piece so I don't have to do quite so much hand-stitching.  I think that will make it a much more do-able project than a whole GFG type quilt top.
