Flower Power


Hi All - I only have one more flower completed for my Grandmother's Flower Garden and here it is. I'm to the point that I have to watch my colors so that the quilt will look balanced. I'm finding that I have a lot of yellows and reds, so I'm trying to concentrate on some other colors. Guess that's the advantage of putting the quilt together as you go - you can see what colors you need to balance it out. At any rate, it's really fun and I'm still enjoying making these hexies :o)
Have a great day and keep smiling -

Hi Judie,
Some days I wish I was young again and didn't have to work for a living!! I got into quilting just as my body was giving up on me. So I don't have a really pretty one that I have ever made. Well I did have one that was my best work and I gave it to my son and daughter-inlaw. We went to their house last Christmas. The quilt was no were to be found. I ask where it was and my daughter-inlaw said Oh I gave it to a friend at church. So my son doesn't even have it. You put so much work into making a quilt, rather good or bad workmanship, you want them to at least keep it!! I really don't know what happened to it.

Thanks!
