An UFO ...

I have never talked much about my Granddaughter's Flower Garden hexagon project, until I was recently asked about it.  So, it is time that it came out-of-the-closet.
The pattern came from an on-line blog and the only link that I have to this pattern is here.  When I tried linking back to the original souce, the link to the pattern has disappeared. 

This is the how my hexagon should look ....
... but knowing me, it got changed.  :o) 

Since moving here, two hexagons got sewn together and the bottom one is almost sewn together.  Usually, one hexagon can be completed in an evening ... if I put my mind to it.
 
These pouches (which were bought at a $ store) hold the workings for my hexagons.
The yellow pouch holds all the basted pieces needed to make one hexagon.  With all the different tabs, this pouch can hold quite a number of hexagons to be sewn.  Yikes .... down to one hexagon .... time to make more.
My green pouch has all the pieces for basting using the English Paper Piecing method and I like how the individual compartments hold the different colours of fabric, the paper templates, etc.  This is a great way to keep me organized.
Also, making hexagons is a great travel project and after the addition of a small pair of scissors, a pin cushion, pins, needle and a spool of thread, this project and pouch is travel-ready.

Have a great day, eh!

Those are handy looking pouches. A good find at the $ store. They would cost a lot more at an office supply.

They're handy little pouches, what a good idea! Must see if I can find something similar. That's a very interesting quilt design.

Thanks for sharing those pouches, bet the dollar store here has them. I get tired of baggies that let stored fabric pieces get scrunched up.
Your quilt is lovely, fun block to work on. I saw something similar on another blog, she was paper piecing. Maybe that one was called spider web, not sure cuz it's been a while.

Thanks for sharing the tips on using the organizers! I was just thinking of making some hexies, so I'll see if I can find something similiar to keep everything neat. That's going to be a wonderful quilt!
