GRANDMA'S FLOWER GARDEN

Grandma’s Flower Garden – Many quilters like to do patterns that are vintage or traditional. Some like to use vintage or reproduction fabrics. That is what makes this small quilt fun – it is all 1930’s fabrics. All the fabric in this quilt is from feed sacks or 1930’s fabric my grandma gave me. My grandpa worked at the feed mill and he would watch for several bags that matched. He would buy the feed in those matching bags and…

THE GREAT MIGRATION QUILT

THE GREAT MIGRATION QUILT

The Great Migration Quilt is simply a combination of two sizes of Flying Geese blocks. The blocks are left-overs from two previous projects. The “geese” started out as 5″ squares and 8″ squares that were sewn diagonally through the center to make two half square triangles (HST). I sewed 10 of the bigger “geese” into three rows. The two rows of smaller “geese” have 20 blocks in each. They did not quite fit right so I ended up adding about…

SAILING SHIPS OF OLD QUILT (another panel quilt)

SAILING SHIPS OF OLD QUILT (another panel quilt)

SAILING SHIPS OF OLD QUILT: The ship blocks are cheater blocks and the blue/gray alternate blocks look like waves. The red border around each ship was part of the panel. The border was a solid navy blue. I like using panels for quilts – they make for a fun project and a way to save time on piecing or applique. Think outside the box and be creative. My personal problem with fabric panels (maybe yours too) is that I see…
