Grandmother's Flower Garden Update




I used up the 6 flowers I made on my last road trip a few weeks ago and every green hexagon I had.
It took me two days just to add those six flowers so my garden is up to date but I need to make more flowers and greens for the path.
Hubby wants this one to be big so we can both use it. Guess I'd better start making these in my sleep.

Or maybe hubby could help with the basting. It's looking so colourful, I love it, cheering you on here.

How lovely! This is the prettiest flower garden quilt I've seen!

btw, I tried to respond to your comment on my blog via email, got a message saying I needed to go to a site a get on your "allowed" list, but the site told me something had "expired." Don't understand totally, but wanted to thank you for dropping by and being an encouragement.

Those colors are stunning, Fiesta! I love using green for the path. I can imagine it's a TON of work!

It is so fun to see this GFG quilt. I have been thinking of using green for the 'betweens' of my flowers and was thinking it would look pretty. Gosh, your quilt is just beautiful!!!

Sandra Henderson said...

P.S. I forgot to tell you how I adore the greens. Varagated and love how they make up the background as in nature! LOVE everything about your quilt! Yes, my hubby doens't like small quilts either... most all of mine are BIG. :)
