Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt

Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt

My current obsession: Hexagons.

I ran across instructions for English Paper Piecing on a blog many years ago. I decided to dip into my fabric scraps and start a project for our attic bedroom in our old house. We ended up moving before I finished the project and the color scheme didn’t work in our new home, but I loved the project and decided to finish it for my Etsy shop.

I am so happy with how it turned out! The hexagons are just over an inch each, which means it took quite a lot of time to hand-piece this. It is a very relaxing process and I recently started another, I enjoyed it so much!

This quilt is a throw-size, measuring 49 3/4” x 46 1/2”. It is a great layering piece for any size bed, or would look great on a sofa or porch swing.

The top was hand-pieced and then I added borders and binding by machine. I also machine quilted it with parallel lines for a nice texture.
