Simple Little Hexagons

I got new furniture this year, and with it a new color scheme.  Fun to redecorate and long overdue! That means I need new throws (need them I tell you!).  I have always wanted to make a Grandmothers Flower Garden blanket and so I think one of the new throws will have to be in hexagons.  I haven’t decided what I am going to do, exactly, if it will be in the traditional flower garden  arrangement or some other pattern, other than it will be hexagons.

These are pretty small, only two rounds.  These are only 2 3/4 inches across.
