Di Ford Mystery Quilt

 I resisted for a while but then finally caved. I signed up for Di Ford's Mystery Quilt with Homestead Hearth and the package arrived in 2 days. I began working on it this week and almost have all my pieces ready to appliqué. Here is the center vase minus one section.
 I have now joined those making hexagons and began prepping them with glue. The last time I made hexagons was about 20 years ago and I basted the edges with thread. I also was not doing so much handwork then so did not get very far. I used the Bohin glue stick. These hexagons are small - 1/2"....
 but won't they be pretty when all sewn together?

You can see how small they are when I hold 28 in the palm of my hand.
I had to tea-dye the floral fabric for the flowers to fill the vase. I used instructions from an older Little Quilts book which was very simple. It turned out well. 
Hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend as we celebrate our risen Savior!
