This is the first block I made with hexagons. The Grandmother's Flower Garden (GFG) quilts traditionally are made of "flowers" like the one above with an outline of white, green or black connecting all the flowers. The early ones, nearly 100 years ago, would have flowers that were all the same or similar. I don't plan on making a traditional GFG quilt. Each block is going to be a combination of pink, cream and brown, but the location with alternate. And I'm not going to separate the blocks with a "path" of a different colored hexes. I'm going to sew the blocks right together.
