What did I really want ? ... Fortunately, I've got that habit to keep track of quilt pictures I really love , and I had seen this one hereunder in a magazine, in March 2009. Just a picture, no name, no pattern, no directions. I remember I even posted a picture of it on our Great Hexagon Quilt Along Group (Hi, dear Robyn !)

Flower Garden... 2nd version
Whew ! ... Just in time : it's midnight, here...
Well, my garden caused me some "trouble" and brainstorming, this week.
Actuallly, the more I was basting my hexies, the more I felt unhappy about these.
Yet I was not feeling that quilt as "mine" and I kept trying different settings, etc...
no way ---> the fabrics didn't want to grow as a flowers garden !
Did you ever experience such thing ? I'm sure you did.
Some quilts want to master the process their own way....So, before going ahead, I decided to step backwards and THINK (it happens!)
I quickly checked my stash, and discovered I had the right white, blue and yellow fabrics. Bliss... All I needed was the red one, so I jumped into my car and went to our local quilt shop
Here's my evening "planting" ...
I decided to ignore those tiny triangles on the original. Only hexies here, with the same setting
And isn't it all that counts, after all ?
Now I can see this garden growing week after week.
Note : the shirtings fabrics are back on the shelve. I've got some nice ideas for them... later.
