    I had this lady friend call me the other day, and said she had some more stuff from her sewing room, I could have. She called me a couple time. The 1st time, was material, and pattern, and a serger. The serger, I gave away. Was told it was a little old to repair, if needed. This time she gave me some more patterns, material, and 2 quilts. 2 grandmothers flower gardens. 1 has to be fixed--coffee stain, and eventually taken a part to make it complete. The other 1 needs 3 more 1/2 grdmother flowers. Here are a couple pictures. She said she made these 20 year's ago. Take care, and WELCOME to the new member's. BOTH quilt's was done by hand. This will be a real test for me to sew 3 more 1/2 section to this quilt. Don-isewman

    Fantastic quilts! Don't you just love the grandmother flower garden quilts? They look like one inch hexagons, are they?
