I now have 11 and a half double hexagon flowers sewn together! I'm just using all my scraps (which include the scraps I stole from my mom at Christmas). I'm still enjoying sewing these at school... the students always ask me what I'm making. Some actually seem interested, and most usually have a story of their own - "my grandma used to hand-sew quilts all the time," "my class made a quilt in middle school," "my mom is trying to get rid of all her fabric," "I still have the baby quilt someone made for me... it is so heavy." And so on and so forth. I love it that the students have at least some connection to sewing and/or quilting!
(The double flowers are not sewn together yet... I just laid them out to see them all together... and when the parents visited this past weekend, we had to lay them out again so Mom could see them all together, too!)
I'm getting an idea for spicin' this thing up, which may or may not include some embroidery... stay tuned ;)
