One of our newest members, Brenna, is working on these hexagonal log cabin flowers. They are super cute and look like a great way to make log cabin blocks fresh again. I also love the colors, they are so bright and cheerful, perfect for end of spring/beginning of summer.

  1. I would be interested in how those hexagon log cabins are constructed. Looks very sweet as a flower how about a whole quilt top?

  2. Frederick, I'm making a mini-quilt for a swap and they'll stay flowers (with paper pieced leaves and stems). I'm planning on doing a very low volume (cream/white on white) improv pieced background. They're pretty small, each strip is only 1" wide, the yellow center is a 3/4" hexie.
    I'm also just sort of making it up as I go along. Hopefully I'll have at least the top finished by the meeting on Saturday!
