hand embroider and embellished getting there.


quilting and appliqued flowers

extra faux cording stripe was going to sew yellow rick rackon it- nope buttons added instead

view of faux mint green faux cording strip


much better with added appliques on border


adore this quilt and the design.
 pictures from 1980's book treasury of american quilts by carter houk hexagons. pictures have a glare due to glossy pages. tried and tried to get rid of it but couldn't figure out if it was even possible.

start sewing--around and around we go!







this quilt used them in the center medallion style



the flowers are hexagon flower-ettes
