    Forgive me if some of you remember....but, i'm hand-quilting a Grandmother's Flower Garden that my 80 yr old aunt pieced together back in the 50s/60s.

    I finished one for her last summer and she was disappointed that it didn't fit her full-size bed. So, when i decided to finish this, I added a border so that it will fit her bed or the bed in the guest bedroom....

    I'm doing a traditional hand-pieced GFG and it's astounding how time consuming it is!! But also wonderful and worth it. Your quilting looks great and the quilt looks brand new.
