WIP – Grandmother’s Garden progress

???????????????????????????????

In the last few months, I’ve posted about my new hand-sewing project (here and here, if you are interested!). I’ve put the flowers I’ve made so far together, with a white hexie border, and some mini yellow flowers between the big flowers to cut the white space a bit. I think they brighten the quilt, don’t you?

I’m happy with how it looks so far, and maybe I’ve gone a bit crazy, but I’ve been having so much fun that I’ve decided to make it into a full king size quilt! 🙂

    Wow, you are dedicated. A Kingsize quilt will be an amazing accomplishment. I on the other hand have a cross stitch started in 1986 as yet incomplete (so close), LOL. It will be a treasure when you’re done. Do you plan to make a square on the back with the date and such. You always see that on really old quilts on the antique road show. Provenance is a virtue when it comes to inheriting an item.

    Sarah, this is stupendous! Really, really lovely–and it looks so perfect! I will look forward to having progress reports along the way to king size! Go for it!

        That’s an idea. I love to sew and don’t get nearly enough time to pursue it. I suffer from hobby overload: reading, writing, gardening, scrap-booking, fairy gardening, regular gardening. You know the drill. 🙂

    Looking wonderful already! I adore quilting, but must confess that I’ve avoided hexies so far – they seem like such a massive commitment! I’d either feel guilty for never working on anything else, or guilty for leaving them TO work on something else!

      Thank you!
      Well as it’s a long-term project with no deadline, that helps. I do it in front of the tv or listening to music, when I feel like it. No guilt feelings!
      Sorry about the delay in replying!
      Happy New Year!
