  4. We have a quilt just like that but with pastel colors, found at Value Village for $14.99! We then saw the same one at a quilt museum. I do like the brighter colors of the one you have featured here, very nice.

  8. This is a quilt that was made by my grandmother, Lucille. She is a very talented quilter and seamstress. This is one of her finer pieces of work.

  10. I'm so glad I read the comments and found out that this was made by your grandmother. It is the pattern called "Grandmother's Flower Garden" and is one that has to be hand pieced. One of my favorite traditional quilts. Thanks so much for sharing. It is beautiful and definetly a "fine piece of work". The photo on the fench is the perfect setting for it.

  15. Farmchick,

    I truly love the colors in this quilt. Your grandmother is a very gifted woman.

    Also, love the picture on your sidebar that reads: "Behind every great blog is an unfed husband." This was an Ouch moment, but oh, such good food for thought.

    I like your blog. It's very unique. :)
