New Project

I am going to try to make a hexagon flower garden quilt.  Here is a photo of my progress making hexagons:
 I will use each of the fabrics to make individual flowers -I have not assembled them yet - But I am posting this photo to show you the little box I found at Michael's craft store -
Doesn't it fit my hexagons perfectly !!!!!

I am using a template found here 
This site has a freebie hexagon template and gives a free pattern on assembling them for a quilt.
Have a great weekend
