Granny's Flower Garden



This is a really quick quilt top put together from the block Granny's Flower Garden on Quilter's Cache. The block is evocative of a Grandmother's Flower Garden Block but without all the blessed hexagons. I did this partly for the white challenge this month in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and partly to use up some of those floral fat quarters and other pieces which are either leftover from other projects or which have found their way into my stash in some odd way, and which I doubt I'll ever be able to use. Several of these pieces were given to me at some or other point, several are leftovers from other things, I think a few are from a sale bin or perhaps were the one "hmm" fat quarter in a sale selection. Whatever the case may be, they work really well in this setting...

An interesting block which stands out against the plain background. I love the fact that every centre is different.

That's really interesting, Kate! Thanks for sharing - another one for the bucket list!! I've got piles of those random floral prints myself....

As a granny, I want to say that my flower garden is NEVER as neat as that!

It is a lovely block, although I like the ones that are less structured best.

Surely beats those hexagons!!!! It looks wonderful too.

You know me Kate - I'm a hexagonoholic but I do like this very much - lovely!

What a nice take on Grandmother's Flower Garden. So nice to move some of those odd fabrics out of the stash.
