Grandmother's Flower Garden

It took me sixteen hours to finish the quilt. I am not very patient and get bored by pantographs quickly but I loved doing the flowers. I was in some kind of zone and just kept doing them... no crossed eyes there :P Just the constant starts and stops were a little annoying.

Beatrice,

You and the piecer have created a really beautiful quilt.  I am in awe!  Am I correct in thinking that every flower is quilting in its own color?  Did you just choose say 12 different colors and use those?  Really would like to know.

No, Anne, that is all the same thread. All those starts and stops were bad enough... changing threads all the time would probably have killed me ;) I use Glide thread, and this is a light green. Probably Willow, maybe Celery, I don't remember exactly. It worked well with the background, and I thought it looked better than the usual neutral colours, and she liked it too, so we went with green.
