Creating flowers from the hexagons

Now that you have made hexagons, it is time to put them together to form the flowers. Many quilts that you will see don't seem to follow a strict plan. This one is. Every flower has the same center. Also every flower has the first row around the center formed from seer sucker. I plan on having all the lines of the seer sucker lined up too, all radiating from the center. It takes 7 hexagons to make the small flowers, 19 for the large size. The hexagons are placed top faces together, they are then whip stitched together, being careful not to catch the edge of the paper underneath (since it will later be removed). All the seer sucker hexagons are attached to the center, and to each other to form the flower.
