Grandmother's Flower Garden!


One of my friends brought this BEAUTY to share at our sewing group yesterday. What a treasure! It was given to her by her mother - can't remember who made it. I love the idea of surrounding each flower with white and then adding green paths.


Even Fritz loves it! (This is his house and he enjoyed every minute of our get together!)

I love the way the edges were finished: straight on two sides and zigzagged on the other two. I'll have to remember this!


And here's a close up of the HAND quilting - yes, all by hand! The interesting this about this quilt is that it has no batting! It is in perfect condition - WOW!

I put the last stitches in the April BOM last night. We're counting down now! Can't wait to share it in a few days...

  5. That's beautiful. I'm working on a similar one...flowers surrounded by cream, surrounded by a green path.

    1. Here's the link if you'd like to see it. I need to do another update as it's gotten quite a bit bigger since then. http://www.nitadances.com/index.php/2014/01/03/a-hexagon-quilt-update-and-some-treasure/
