sweet dreamy dreams

These days I have the urge to make something pretty, cuddly and mindless. I guess you can't call it an art quilt, because I'm using traditional techniques. I've already made a kajillion 3/4" hexagons. Websites such as http://www.incompetech.com/ will allow you to print out hexagons of any size. Here's a photo of what I've done so far - the flowers won't necessarily be in this arrangement when I actually sew them together. I love the colors and textures. It makes me smile. All the outer petals are cotton and the centers are all silk. Are there other art quilters out there who still revert to old-timey techniques? I'd like to hear from you.
