    At Easter my mother in law showed me her work in progress! She has patience that I don't have. She is hand stitching all of this quilt. It is going to be the grandmothers flower garden or something like that. These pieces have taken her 2 weeks. She works full time also though. It would take me that long to do one if I had to hand stitch anything.

    I commend anyone who hand stitches one of those.
    When we were cleaning out my mom and dads house, I KNEW there was a Grandma's Flower Garden Quilt that my mom had started. I went looking for it, but found out my brother tossed it out to the dogs house. I was soooooo mad!!

    That is amazing! I like the way she is setting the blocks with little green diamonds between. Tell her "Nice Job!!" I think it's nice you and your mil share an interest in quilting.

    Those are beautiful quilt blocks. I have two quilts in that pattern that my grandmother did many years ago. How they do that I don't know.

    Beautiful beautiful! Your MIL is doing some mighty lovely work. I am so impressed with the tiny diamonds. I am currently working on a GMFG, but putting it together with green hex's. Those dimonds are just too small for me! I am doing the paper piecing method. I helps me to be a bit more accurate. What a beautiful quilt she is going to have!
