Grandmother's Flower Garden -Page 2

To make the first row, sew four white hexagons together as shown in the step above. The second row is one white hexagon sewn to three of the Color 3 hexes, and then another white hex. Follow the diagram at left to make subsequent rows. Sew rows together by stitching 1/4" from the bottom edge to the pivot point where white and green meet in the second row, then continue to pivot and sew, pivot and sew. You may chose to make many colored flowers, and then join with the white "paths" when you are ready to assemble the quilt! Remember, the white row is a connector. Each flower "block" does NOT get a white row!

 

 

 

 

Here's one that Lynette made!    And Bertha's 1970's quilt, repaired by Linda K  Cecelia's!  Sue's!  Linda's Pillow!  Mary's Quilt!  Masako's!

If you want to make one like Cecelia's with inset diamonds-CLICK HERE! The corners will need triangles: HALF of the diamond! ADD SEAMS!

 

Here you see the beginnings of a quilt, and that the white row of one "block" is also the white row of its neighbors! There are a lot of pieces in a Grandmother's Flower Garden, but it will be a much cherished heirloom for your family or loved ones!

Happy Quilting All!

...and May your Gardens grow Abundantly!
