Floral Hexagons New Project

Still inspired by spring flowers and floral fabrics! Using some scraps from my Liberty stash I started to cut and prepare hexagons with the purpose of making a pillow.

In the garden the iris are wonderful and the wisteria fabulous this year. This is the view I have from my bedroom window in the morning opening the shutters, and the truth is that it influences my mood positively for the rest of the day! The wisteria flowerheads can reach one yard long! They look like a lace curtain, and moving with the wind they exhale a delicate perfume.

On the left of my window is the fig tree and every morning new little figs appear! 

Nature is really miraculous and so inspiring for quilting or painting!

  1. Hexies look fab. I grew up with wisteria in my parents garden. They are spectacular. I love their soft seed pods. Your Iris is also an amazing colour.
