    I got interested in making Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts. So now I'm looking for different ideas or designs to make. I have my first one ready to quilt.

    I did a Grandma's flower on a shirt and put my Granddaughter's pic in the middle. Makes for great conversation!!!

    And here is where you can download blank pattern pages to color and try out color combos before you buy the fabric.

    Thankyou so much for all the terrific ideas. I googled but i couldn't seem to find anything, but you are real life savers. I just don't know which one I want to try first.
    I just can't thank you enough.

    Now I have another question. Why is the book "Quilts from Grandmother's Flower Garden" so expensive? I know way back I saw a copy of it & it wasn't a very fat book. Just wondering.

    This was the original pattern from the Kansas City Star. I have seen others with the green diamonds so that must have been what the pattern called for. Enjoy.
