I've wanted to make my own Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt forever. (For the uninitiated, that's a classic style of English paper pieced quilt, where the entire top is hand-pieced from hexagons, arranged in beautiful flower patterns.) I've actually started four of these quilts, but sadly... faced with sewing a thousand or so hexies together, I always give up. That's why I designed this Grandmother's Cutting Garden Quilt pattern. I wanted a quilt that would allow me to have fun with some hexie piecing, but also be able to finish the dang thing within the same calendar year. Do you love your hexies? Then you'll have a blast making this quilt, and even more fun snuggling under it with a good book and some tea. This quilt uses 18 hexagon flowers (with connecting stems), which are assembled by hand in the traditional EPP method. They're then machine appliqued to a simple quilt top. Add some simple quilting and a scrappy binding, and you have all the cheer of a Grandmother's Flower Garden with way, way less work. This pattern is very beginner-friendly, so if you've never tried English paper piecing or never made a quilt before, don't worry! You can do this. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Thread a hand-sewing needle Sew a straight machine seam Have some space to lay out a 60" x 60" quilt-in-progress SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 56" x 58"
