A closer look at some of my Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks. I did 93 blocks, all done using English Paper Piecing. I made my own paper hexagons, a very tedious task! The fabric is not my favorite now...I would like them in Civil War reproductions much more!! Maybe one day I will make another... I am fascinated by the 0.25 size hexagon! Now that I have Inklingo, the process would certainly be faster. If you are not familar with Inklingo, please check out Linda Franz's website at http://www.inklingo.com/ for more details.

Grandmother's Flower Garden
In the late 1980's I started on a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. I really enjoyed making the blocks, it was so relaxing to just sit and stitch the hexagons together. Now I should really "do" something more with them ...there was lots of work put into these blocks! It seems like such a shame to just have them sit on a shelf in my sewing room!
