Smaller hexagons and diamond variations make up ~5 ¼" six-pointed Star Flowers which are then joined with larger hexagons to make the top. The top is pieced by hand using the English paper piecing method. Instructions are included.
You only need standard sewing tools, no special equipment is necessary.
Scrap busting and Jelly Rolls
This pattern is ideally suited for scrap quilts. So-called Jelly Rolls, bundles of coordinating fabric strips, are also perfect for cutting the petals. In addition, you will need fabric for the large hexagons and for the border. I used an assortment of cream-colored fabrics.
Tip for gathering a wide assortment of fabrics: always carry a petal template in your wallet and ask for scraps at every opportunity ...
After quilting it on my longarm machine my quilt turned into a jewel. In Germany you may take advantage of my professional quilting service.
By the way: you can make additional good use of the hexagon templates by creating a Grandmother's Flower Garden:
