    Just want to thank all of you who took the time to locate sites for layouts of Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt for me. I had searched and searched but only came up with one or two but they just didn't meet my particular need. Looking at all the lovely options I realize that perhaps I should have made my flowers a little more uniform as in all one color centers but I truly love every one of the fabrics I used which are bright and cheery. I wanted to locate a layout that would not deter from that feeling but would keep it from appearing so busy. I have imported all of your sites into "My Pages". Again, thank you all. Just love this board.

    I love Bonnie Hunter's version, but you'd need tights and a cape to do what she's doing!

    Don't worry about uniformity!!!! "scrappy" is good for a GFG too!

    here's a pic of mine in progress:
