I became enthralled with patchwork after this first lesson and many years later I became a patchwork teacher and the first block I would teach, of course, was Grandmothers Flower Garden. Students would start off by creating their own hexagons with a compass. Years later there became available templates you could buy already in the shape of hexagons. Example of a quilt using hexagons. You can just imagine Grandmother walking the green path around the flower beds or maybe my maternal grandmother walking the strawberry patch eating the strawberries on her way around the garden.
Today, I made this card using Stampin' Up! (r) hexagon punch - so much easier than drawing your own shapes. I have used Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! and the Honeycomb embossing folder.
