Terrain Flowers

These 6 flowers were made from the same piece of fabric from Kate Spain's Terrain line. Amazing what some fussy cutting can do.

Hexagon Flowers

About a year ago, I needed a hand project to take on vacation and decided to start a Grandmother's Flower Garden of 1" hexagons. I finished about 7 flowers and have since discovered that my home-made templates weren't printed to scale. I've since decided to work on it in earnest. Here's the 25 I have done so far.

Today, I found one of my favorite prints from Kate Spain's Terrain line and was able to fussy cut 6 different parts of the print for 6 different flowers.

It left a rather Swiss-cheesy mess, but I think the results will be worth it.

Here's one of the cuts. Even rearranging this one results in strikingly different flowers.
