One Flower Wednesday

Quite a while ago I started a Grandmothers Flower Garden quilt. I worked diligently on this project. Then I burned out and it has sat. Well last week I ran into a group of quilters doing versions of this quilt, and having a quilt along. One Flower Wednesday.  The goal is to do at least one flower every Wednesday, and post them weekly or once a month.  

So for this my first one flower Wednesday.  I was enjoying stitching this so much I went beyond the actual flower to the white, which I didnt quite finish this week. But any progress is a step in the right direction, so here it is.


If anyone is interested in joining this project, here is a link to the Garden Party

Fun project!

This was the pattern for the first quilt I made. I was 16 and I made it from fabric from my mom's scrap bag, including lots of scraps from clothes she had made for me throught the years.

I pieced, quilted and bound every stitch by hand, and it went to college with me all four years as my bedspread.

That's a big step! I want to give my flowers that extra row as well. I'm trying to decide on what to border them with yet.
