One Flower Wednesday.....Under the Rainbow in Kansas......

"Someone who thinks the world is always cheating him is right.  He is missing that wonderful feeling of trust in someone or something."― Eric Hoffer
 
 

    
Hope all my American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday and to all by bloggy friends hope you are all looking forward to a fabulous Christmas holiday.............

Today I have another Kansas flower to show you..........this one also comes from the "Under the Rainbow" series by Timeless Treasures............I don't know if I have mentioned this before but when I first started making the Oz flowers I didn't know that Timeless Treasures had made 6 different Oz fabric series........But as I began looking I found them and was able to make the fussy cut flowers I have been making..........so all the sepia tones I have found come from the "Under the Rainbow" series...........here it is...........the tornado!

Since this is so small, it will go somewhere near the upper left to mid center of the Kansas side..........I will still have lots of "tornado-ish" skies with stuff flying through the air on that side and the sky will eventually transition from brown to yellow to green and then to blue as it reaches the right side of the hanging to the Oz side............I see it in my head but we shall see how it looks when it finally makes it to the quilt.........lol..........

 Just a reminder to all of you that Karen at Journey of a Quilter hosts her One Flower Wednesday linky each week and you can see more hexagon flowers there by following the LINK.....  

Today I will start getting the rest of the Christmas decorations down from the attic.........maybe will have my tree up by the end of the day........I also need to finish up a couple of swap blocks and sort out the PS charms I received in a swap and.......well I won't get any of that done if I don't get this post finished so I will just say "see you next time..........and Ta-Ta for now!

You did a fabulous job on that one. I really like the stormy colors too.

It sounds like you have a full day ahead for you. Have fun.

This is so amazing! By the way, a cousin of mine just moved from Kansas to California ; )

Nice hexie flower. That tornado certainly looks scary. I need to get going with my Christmas decorating as well. I have gotten my nativity out and set the box in the living room so that is something...

Rachel said...

This one is incredible! LOVE!

Janet said...

Amazing how much the colour changes when you put it on the other fabric! It is great how you are mixing up the different fabric lines.

So, when do you think you'll be finished with Oz? Love seeing the new installment each week.

I agree, the tornado looks scary, great colors, love your hexie! We put up our Christmas decorations last week and now enjoying them; have fun decorating!

Another excellent OZ flower Ida! It sure is time to get the Christmas decorations out and finish up the shopping too.

Amazing flower Ida!

I really don't know how you make all the pieces line up from one petal to the next. Every single one looks awesome! :-)

I wish I could peek into your head to see the finished wall hanging. I get more and more impatient with each flower you make!

Your fussy-cutting is co very good, it looks like you have simply drawn lines on the fabric!! Amazing!
