Grandmother’s Flower Garden – started late 2012


The very first quilt I can remember my grandmother piecing when I was a very little girl was Grandmother’s Flower Garden.  She cut each piece with scissors using a cereal box template and sewed the fabric together by hand with 1/4″ seams.  She made several of these quilts, usually using pink as the dominant color with yellow centers and green ‘paths’.

In her honor, I decided to make a Grandmother’s Flower Garden, but was determined to learn to English Paper Piece for accuracy.  It’s totally addicting and the top was made quickly.

It waits for me to decide how I want to finish the edges… either with borders or partial blocks.  The top is currently queen size.
