    Grandma's Garden

    I had posted on my introduction that I was working on a Grandma's Garden quilt and someone wanted me to post it when it was done.

    Well the top is done!

      Corrine, I really enjoyed looking at your album. You are so totally addicted to hexigons. I'd love to see what you would do with Natalie's half-hexi template.

      Beautiful work!!

            Mostly, you deserve a crown for proving to be queen of the hexies!

                      Very nice! I see you're not adverse to hard work! LOL If I make a flower garden the Eleanor Burns applique way. I don't think I have the patience to do them the standard way. I'm also interested to get my hands on the MSQC ruler to try it by that method. My daughter gets annoyed because she has to take in all the stuff I order on-line and store it until I get back to the states to collect my purchases. Super fun to get home and open everything. Like Christmas for me. I guess if she complains I should tell her to take a look in the attic at all the stuff we're storing for her until she gets out on her own. LOLOLOL Have you used the Hexi ruler from MSQC?

                        I took another look at your quilt top and am wondering. How did you quilt it with that hexagon pattern on the green background fabric?

                          Okay, Cori, how the heck did you make this quilt? Is it done all by hand? After taking a closer look it looks like the background is hexagons as well. Guess I don't know too much about the construction of this quilt except that "Grandmother's Flower Garden" always catches my eye when I see pictures of them.

                            Beautiful quilt! Love the way you set it without the one color path.
