    I just finished this full-size Grandma's Flower Garden quilt tonite. My 80 yr old aunt hand-pieced this during the 50s or 60s and gave it to me about 10 yrs ago :oops:

    I added the border so that it will fit a full-size bed (my bed is queensize)

    She doesn't know i finished it, i'm going to take it to her over President's day weekend

    on my bed

    Absolutely gorgeous! That's a wonderful blend of fabrics, and beautifully quilted too.

    It is lovely. So awesome that you could finish it for her. Did you hand quilt it? in a hoop or frame?
