Slow Stitching #59

I've been making hexagon flowers for a couple of years, in all sorts of sizes.  Recently the the Kingfisher Stitch-Along started up, using 1" hexagon flowers and appliqueing them on 6" finished 60 degree diamonds. I bumped up my blocks to 7" finished diamonds, so I can use my 1", 1 1/8", and 1 1/4" hexagon flowers.  Also trying combinations of my smaller hexi flowers, here are the 5/8" hexi's in a group of 4:

Here is a small layout on my cutting table seeing how the hexi's will show up against the background flowers.

I have yet to applique the hexi's onto the background fabrics. But I have a design to use my stash of hexi flowers and to make a bed quilt.
