Granny How Does Your Garden Grow?

It has been a long time since I looked at my Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt. But the other day I realized it has been about a year since I started it and I thought it was time to get back at it!
As you can see, since the last update I have made a bit of progress, not much though. Here is a list of the previous posts about the quilt. First post, second post, third post, fourth post
The little bag was a birthday present to myself. It is my on-the-go project bag!
I still have not started on the fabric I bought last summer for the quilt and have a lot of scraps to use up still. Right now I am working on sewing the last batch of scraps I rounded up into flowers and then I will start on the new fabric! As I don't want all the new fabric to end up in the outside edges, I will wait until I have all the flowers sewn up and then sew them together.

As you can see, I was getting distracted from my Flower Garden quilt! When we had our "Sewing Camp" a couple of weeks ago I finished up this quilt top. My version of a "Ticker Tape" quilt from Sunday Morning Quilts. (The quilt is on the back cover of the book.)
 Mom found these little pre-cut pieces for me from Moda. They are just the cutest things in the world!! I knew right away what I wanted to do with them.


  1. Beautiful colors and patterns on both!

  2. Lots of progress on your Grandmother's Flower Garden, slow and steady wins the race. It is going to be an heirloom, beautiful.

  3. Heide, your quilts are beautiful! I especially like flower garden quilt. It looks like a lot of work, but the end results are fabulous! As always, love your choice of fabric. : )

  4. Heide,
    Gorgeous work on both quits. One day I'll get into quilting as well. It sounds like a lot of fun.


  5. Heide,

    I love both of your quilts. I starting working on one years ago and you have motivated me to dig it out and start working on it again. My grandmother made flower garden quilts and the picture of yours reminds me of hers--very classic! :)


  6. Doing this in your spare time, huh? lol Grandmother's Flower Garden is one of my favorites. Tell me more about the sewing camp! I've always wanted to do something like that.

  7. Oh, your quilting is lovely. I have always loved the Grandmother's Flower Garden pattern, and now I love the the Ticker Tape pattern too.

  8. I love your hexagons! You have a wonderful blog (I am a new visitor). Ann
