"Grandmother's Flower Garden" quilt

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I need help with a "Grandmother's Flower Garden". My grandmother made the quilt top, but she died before it was finished. My grandmother was a little Ukranian lady, did not write or read English, but was visual and that's how she made this quilt top. It was machine pieced and now my aunt and I want to finish it, as an honour to my grandmother. She really was a stickler for finishing projects. I would appreciate having "Grandmother's Flower Garden" quilts pictures posted. This way I could get some ideas on how to finish and quilt this quilt. Also, I'm a newbie. Wish me luck. Thanks, and I look forward to seeing the forums everyday. Darlene

Darlene, how wonderful for you. A true Grandmothers Flower Garden quilt, from your Grandmother! Have fun in the process of finishing this quilt, knowing that your Grandmother would be proud of you for honoring her in this way. All the best with it! Can't wait to see it finished. :cool:

Darlene, I'm sorry to hear that your grandmother passed. I just recently lost my grandmother and I miss her every day. How wonderful that you want to finish her quilt to honor her! I don't have quilting suggestions but Coleen's suggestion and the example that Linda provided are great starts. Enjoy the process and let us see pictures when you're done.
