Hexagon Flowers from The Quilt Barn

We love The Quilt Barn!  Heather has been fortunate enough to attend a quilting retreat at their brick and mortar shop in Idaho.  The Quilt Barn is an awesome shop with all things quilty and sewing.  Then they also have a cute blog and offer lots of fun tutorials and other things.  Here's an awesome hexi tutorial from Tara!

Anyone remember this quilt I made last year? I used about 18 Moda Mini Charm Packs and about 4 yards of background fabric.  I had a great time making it and it was, actually, pretty easy. It just takes lots of time.
I think of this as a modern Grandmother's Garden. I didn't want to sew together the hundreds of plain spacers that go between each flower. I was sure I would lose interest. Buuuut...if I didn't have to make the spacers? Perfect

Here is how you can make a Hexie Flower Quilt. A baby quilt would be cute too, and wouldn't be as time consuming..

I am in the process of making this quilt. I am making 225 flowers as I want my quilt to be about 100 inches square. This will be a long term project as I only have 37 flowers made so far. I really appreciate the tutorial - thanks.
