    you do lovely work, I wish I could finish mine. I started it and then about 12 flowers into it I decided ...well maybe we could do something smaller or different! Love the quilt beside it also!

    That just makes me smile! It's beautiful. I can't wait to see it all quilted. Now, you've just got to show a pic of the quilt next to it.

    I am hand-quilting a GFG also, with some help my my guild friends. Mine is huge and I hope to have it quilted by end of February. Have been working on it for 6 months a little at a time. We can encourage each other. Yours is lovely. I did not do the top of the one I am working on. I had an internet friend send it to me because she no longer wanted it. I was truly lucky to receive it.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Beautiful quilt. Have fun hand quilting it. I wouldn't have the patience for that. Can't wait to see it quilted.

    I love Grandmother's flower Garden. I have three, one not finished from the 1900's, one from the 30's and one from the 80's. They are all beautiful. I didn't make any of them but am thinking about finishing the old one.

    I'm working on a GFG, king size. I'm almost finished with the top. But, I'm not sure how to quilt it. I love hand quilting, but don't want to quilt around each hexagon, as I've done before w/a baby quilt; that would take far too long on one this size, (and I don't have much time in the day to work on it). I'm kinda thinking about maybe quilting the center hex "round", like the inside of a flower, then working the remainder in the petals. What are your plans to quilt your GFG?SandyinZ4, what is the quilting pattern that you are doing on yours?
