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 that "Garden Walkway" -- the small green diamonds that surround each "flower" ~ is an exceptionally good example of a popular Depression Era design.
Beautifully crafted, with so many small pieces. 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 a very generous size ... and could be used on a modern bed. Precisely pieced and skillfully hand quilted ~ in small even stitches around each and every hexagon.
In Excellent Condition, and with a beautifully balanced distribution of color, it looks as beautiful on a wall as on a bed. It was featured in an exhibition I organized for The National Cowgirl Museum in Fort Worth (2012).
