    Your quilting just made the quilt pop! It is absolutely beautiful. What a happy bonding time you had with your sisters while doing this for your mother. A family affair. Congratulations! I know this will seem like blasphemy for me to say, but Grandmothers Flower Garden is not one of my favorite designs......HOWEVER the way you quilted yours just blows me away with its' beauty and so now I can say there is one Grandmothers Flower Garden I like.......YOURS!!!!!!!

    Your quilt is gorgeous. If your Mother is like me the quilt won't be too heavy. I just love, love it.

    My sisters and I love to quilt together, even though we only get together once or twice a year. Your mother's quilt is beautiful!

    Oh my what a beautiful GFG! My favorite quilt pattern! I am working on my 3rd one at the present time. I have never really cared for the ones I have seen that were machine quilted, but yours has surly changed my mind. You have done such a beautiful job. You are so lucky to have your sisters to work with.

    I have used Hobbs 80/20 batting with much success. Not sure that would change the weight however.

    I would have loved to quilt it by hand but I don't have patience (and skills) to do it.

    I would use a thin wool batting. It lasts such a long time, and is warm, but not heavy.

    Oh My Heavens....love everything about the quilt! It must be so fun to have sisters who help you with projects, especially one so work intensive. A beautiful result.

    With your skills at the machine, you needn't be concerned about hand quilting! I also like the brown "paths" Mine are all in green, and I'm getting a bit tired of green. Had never thought of brown. I need to start thinking outside the traditional. Again, your GFG is so lovely.
