A Grandmother's Flower Garden...

Yesterday I sat with a woman at church who pulled out a little bag with lots of colorful fabric scraps, and I was automatically intrigued.  After watching her work for a few minutes I asked her what she was making, and she told me a brief history of the Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt (sometimes called the English Flower Garden quilt).  She was kind enough to show me how it's done, and I knew that this was a project for me.

It might take me a decade.  And I might just give up and make pillows with them instead, but they are so beautiful and timeless...I can't wait to pick out fabrics for it!
