Posts Tagged ‘quilt pattern’

I found some excellent and informative links today with historical background and instructions for Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilts and wanted to share with those quilters who would like to try this technique.  It’s a great way to use up small pieces of scrap fabric.  As shown in these links, there are several different methods of piecing this type of quilt — in individual flowers, as I did, or in complete rows as you go across.
