The binding is sewn, the label is attached. The journey has come to an end.
Here is a close up of a block . . .
and the border.
I was inspired by two old quilts. The first one was made by my Grandmother (Sylvia Jane) Miller.
This is a dolly quilt made by my husband’s grandmother (Celeste Kauffman Hoover) for his sisters.
Even though these ladies never knew each other, they both appliqued the hexagon center to the border and both quilted their border with the baptise fan design.
I liked the the way their quilts looked and incorporated their ideas into mine. I do think using diamonds and triangles to separate the flowers is more attractive. However, if I ever make another flower garden quilt, I won’t use the diamonds & triangles. They were much more time consuming to sew than hexagons.
