Grandmother's Flower Garden
This is a beautiful Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt.
One of my quilter's called and said she found a quilt top at a garage sale. She asked if I would take a look at it and see if I could do anything with it.
Wow! What an amazing find. It really was in terrific shape. There were three little spots that needed to be repaired. After that was done I made the backing, added the batting, quilted and put the binding on this beautiful piece. Now it's a quilt.
I think I need to start going to more garage sales and flea markets so I can look for wonderful treasures like this one!
This is an extraordinary example of a scrap quilt. The pattern is held together by using a yellow center in each of the flowers. Every flower is outlined by a row of white and the strings of green diamond shapes add an elegant touch.
We were not certain of the age of this quilt top and some of the fabrics seemed on the old side so I quilted an overall meandering pattern to add strength to the finished piece. This quilt will provide comfort for many years to come!
I guess we should never under estimate a garage sale.
