I had this lady friend call me the other day, and said she had some more stuff from her sewing room, I could have. She called me a couple time. The 1st time, was material, and pattern, and a serger. The serger, I gave away. Was told it was a little old to repair, if needed. This time she gave me some more patterns, material, and 2 quilts. 2 grandmothers flower gardens. 1 has to be fixed--coffee stain, and eventually taken a part to make it complete. The other 1 needs 3 more 1/2 grdmother flowers. Here are a couple pictures. She said she made these 20 year's ago. Take care, and WELCOME to the new member's. BOTH quilt's was done by hand. This will be a real test for me to sew 3 more 1/2 section to this quilt. Don-isewman

Fantastic quilts! Don't you just love the grandmother flower garden quilts? They look like one inch hexagons, are they?

She is so sweet !! Glad your going to finish them. I'm doing or I should say learning to make the hexagons. Making book markers to start but once I get better will make quilt. Now that I have a picture I know how it's done! Ty
