Hexie Flower Quilt Top

Here is the picture of the kit Terry bought.  

This is what we did with it.  She wanted all the flowers to have the same centers and white hexies around them.  I think it really shows off the hexie flowers this way.  My part is done, now it is up to her to decide how she wants to finish it.  I really like the way it came out.  It was done with the English paper piecing method. It is all sewn by hand.

Row 6

Things have been moving right along.  I finished row 6 this morning.  Now I need to do the 31 white hexies for the last row and across the bottom like the top.  I have the last 3 flowers already finished.  Maybe by the end of the weekend I can get it finished.  Then it goes to Terry so she can finish it any way she decides to.  It was her kit to start with.  I am just putting it together the way she wanted it.
