Grandmother's Flower Garden

Hi everyone! Today was a work day and we had so much show and tell! I love it when people bring in show and tell.... Anyway, Judy brought in some Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts that she has picked up at antique stores. In this picture, she bought all the loose blocks at an estate sale. there must have been over 100 blocks. all just beautiful and done by hand. This one was also done by hand. Judy quilted it on her long arm. be sure and click on the picture to see it up close!! you can do that on all the pictures. the quilter used bubble gum pink for her pathways. I love it!!
Now this one is unusual too! this time the quilter used a floral fabric to kind of frame each hexagon flower. truly beautiful. it was hand pieced and hand quilted. I love them all...
Oh and this is Becca, she wanted me to take her picture with Barky! she is such a cutie!

Thanks for looking....
