What's on my design wall...

My design wall is obviously a floor right now, but here it is...my grandmother's flower garden quilt.  I started this over ten years ago and recently just started working on it again.  The blocks with the cream around them were done ten years ago and I'm not sure that is the direction I want to continue in.  I may be taking some apart, but that is okay.  I'm really enjoying working on this now.


I did finish another block yesterday. It has the lost fabric I found last weekend in it.  Looking at all these blocks I'm really getting excited to have this all in one piece.  Hopefully it won't be long.



I did finally receive the first two issues of the Vignette magazine...what fun they are to read.  Wow, I knew they would be good and are they!  I'm so excited to get started on the mystery quilt and the hexagon quilt.  Of course, I would really love to finish my already more than started grandmother's flower garden quilt before I start another, but I may just have to work on two at a time...imagine that.  I bet you'd never guess I've done that before.


I'm off to the sewing room to try and finish yet another project.  Thanks for stopping by! :)

Love those grandmother's flower garden blocks. Somewhere I have about 100 of these that I sewed when I was pregnant with my youngest son, a long time ago (he turns 21 next week -yikes! where does the time go) I need to search the boxes and look at them again. Thanks for the inspiration!

Your grandmother's flower garden blocks look gorgeous! I hope to start hexagon's soon ... yours are an inspiration.
