Hexagon Flowers

I posted a photo of a display quilt for Hickory Stick Quilt Shop in Hannibal, Missouri yesterday.  Below are the directions and photos of how to make the hexagon flowers from a two inch circle.  They are a simple way to make blossoms.  I have grouped them to make hydrangeas, used alone to simulate cherry blossoms,etc. Limited only by your imagination. Enjoy.

 

 

Step 1. Cut 2 inch circle

 

Step 2. Find center by folding in half and then in half again and press or mark with dot.

 

Step 3. With wrong side up, fold edge to center and press in place

 

Step 4. Fold point up to center, press in place

 

Step 5. Fold point to center and press 4 more times

 

Step 6. Anchor center by hand or machine or with decorative stitching
