Meadowbloom Paper Piecing

This is my second big paper piecing project. I purchased multiple sets of 5″ squares and charm packs of Moda Meadowbloom and began making hexis out of them, without a solid plan of what I wanted to do. I also have a jelly roll of the fabric sampler.

Ideas might be to turn them into an apron or a wall hanging. Could use jelly roll to do a wide edging around a center of hexagons as a wall quilt. The sunshine colors make it seem like something awesome to hang in my craft room, maybe little headers for above the blinds?

Each flower consists of 7 hexis – trying to balance between the 6 main colors: turquoise blue, magenta, coral pink, sunshine yellow, grass green, and cream, and some have multiple colors on them as well. There are 18 flowers complete and 41 already based hexis left. Two 2.5″ charm packs remain, and eight 5″ pieces remain.

Basted with silver thread on with card stock punched with punch of 3/4″ hexagon sides. Sewing together with Mettler silk finish thread in color 960 Tropicana.

Discussed on podcast episodes – Episode 90: Looking Forward, part 2 and Episode 91: Falling into Trifecta-ing.
