    This is my friendship Garden. Several friends and I collected flower prints for sometime and then swapped some of our "prized pieces". I made this with some pieces that also looked like watercolors, which were really special as they looked very much like some of the floral watercolors my mom would have painted. She passed away a year ago and this was my quilt in memory of her.... She loved flowers, and loved to paint them. I was very blessed and very close to her, we were fortunate that she was able to live with us the last 6 years, I miss her very much!!

    O-o-h - I like this very much. Simple yet beautiful. The black really accents the pieces.

    What a beautiful quilt. Your mother would have been very proud of it. I'm sorry for the loss of your mother. I know you miss her.

    My Mom passed away 2-21-09. I really miss her. She loved flowers so much, too.

    Why did you add (flimsy) at the end of the topic?

    So sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. I still have my mom at 82 and know how blessed I am. How wonderful that you spent the last 6 yrs. with her. This will be a special memory of her. It's very pretty and feminine.

    Beautiful quilt. I like this design. I have a bunch of floral prints left over from a previous quilt, this is a consideration for their use.
