    Grandmother's Flower Garden top FINALLY finished!!!!

    Well, it's only taken me a little under 3 years to finish the top working on it on and off. The entire thing is hand sewn and there are a total of 1,132 hexagons that I have sewn around twice. The finished size is 112 1/4 by 92 inches, so a queen with a pillow tuck. I will be hand quilting it in the traditional method starting this winter, but since I still have to piece the back together and baste it I will still be working on it.

    Thanks for looking!!

    It's not a mistake, it's an unconscious decision to change the pattern.
