    As far as I know it had to be made back in the 40's or 50's. It was already in her cedar chest when I was 8 - 10 years old and I was born in '53. She had a bag of completed flowers packed up with it and told me she fully intended to finish it one day. She lived to be 89 but didn't trust her eyesight enough to sew much in her later years. I jumped on it when she offered it to me and I promised I'd finish it one day. Hope you're proud of me Grandmama.
