I've Basted The Last Of The Hexagons Needed For The Quilt Top

     I finally finished basting the last of the hexagons to finish my scrappy Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt top.  These represent what I need to sew up the last two rows, there are 10 scrappy flowers, 2 scrappy half flowers, 134 beige hexies for the third round of each flower, and 92 green hexies to finish the connecting path around each flower.  I'll start sewing these together tomorrow.

   I'm almost to the end of my first spool of thread (Essential Quilting Thread from Connecting Threads, 1200 yards).  I can't believe how much of this top was done with one spool of thread since I basted each hexagon and sewed them together with double thread in the top.
