My mother, in the 1970's, handmade 63 "flowers" for a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. She used her sewing scraps which at the time were double-knits. She never got around to putting them together. She has been gone over 10 years and I am now hand-sewing them together. I would appreciate any suggestions, tips, etc. regarding what type of batting and backing to use and any other general ideas. Thanks in advance!
