Grandmother's Flower Garden
Unidentified Quilt Maker
76 x 98 inches
Found in Illinois
Exhibited: National Cowgirl Museum, 2012
This Grandmother's Flower Garden, with a "Garden Walkway" (the small green diamonds that surround each hexagonal "flower") is an exceptionally fine example of this popular Depression Era design.
Beautifully crafted, with tons of small pieces very precisely pieced. Some of the hexagonal pieces are "fussy cut," with the printed fabric carefully cut out of flowered fabric. (See photo)
At 76 x 98 inches, it's very generous in size ... and would work on a modern bed. Skillfully hand quilted ~ in small even stitches around each and every hexagon, and gorgeous feathers around the edges.
In Excellent Condition, and with a beautifully balanced distribution of color, this beauty was featured in an exhibition at The National Cowgirl Museum in Fort Worth, TX (2012).
