Planning is one of my favorite aspects of the entire quilting process. Sometimes it's wonderfully refreshing to sew without a plan and see where you end up, but planning and sketching and even dreaming about how a project might develop are inspiring activities too!
For quite a while I've been basting my hexagons without a real plan for finishing. While doing some studio cleaning this weekend I found a yellow polka dot fabric that just seemed to be the perfect center for my hexagon flowers. I stitched the aqua flower and then had to "audition" a few others.
