Falling down the rabbit hole of english paper piecing

Wow! Once I started english paper piecing I cannot stop. I have found this website for Geta's Quilting Studio as my inspiration and source of hexagon pdf's to print out.

Here I have many abstract flowers up on my design board. I am hand piecing from the design board, as I find that is the only way to keep things in order.
