What you will need

  • This is all cotton. It was hand pieced by my Aunt from scraps of my Grandmother's dress & apron materials. The background is sugar sacks. It was given to me by my Aunt to finish. I hand quilted it and bound it and gave it to my daughter. I call it my learning quilt because after quilting half of it
  • my Mother showed me a better way and I ended up tearing out the fist half of the quilting and redoing it . I was much happier with the results.

Just gorgeous. I am in the process of hand piecing a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. Each 'flower' is in shades of pink. I have two done by my grandmother, but wanted to make one for myself. Currently I have 42 blocks finished. Hopefully I will get it done before I die. Being 71 years old, it does put the pressure on me. lol Your quilting is lovely and the piecing is beautifully done. Thanks for sharing it.
I too am 71 and hand piecing my own Grandmothers Flower Garden. I have the flowers all finished, just need to put it together when I decide how I am going to do that. :
