My Grandmother's Garden

Finished size. Is 87" x 95". Fabrics were collected over three years. Made using the Offset Log Cabin block. This is first full sized finished quilt and first time I free-motion. Very amaturish quilting but I improved as I went. The borders were added using quilt as you go method. I referenced two Marti Mitchell classes. "Quick and easy Log Cabins" and "Machine Quilting in sections". Very helpful. Also used Mimi Dietrich 'Finishing School" to help put binding on. The challenge was the large size of the top, because I sashed it between blocks with posts I couldnt see how I could break the quilt top into smaller sections to quilt so just added borders last. Also borders are same top and bottom but different to the sides. This was made to fit the bed and be used.
