Grandmother's Flower Garden

Lately I've been working on piecing a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. This is a picture of the first block I made. I'm really proud of it and since I took this picture I've added several more blocks. It's really slow going sewing all those little hexagons together by hand, but I'm enjoying it and if I stick with it long enough I hope to have a bed size quilt.

I thought about just making enough for a quilted throw or wall hanging, but I think this pattern is so beautiful that nothing less than a bed size quilt will do it justice.

My mother-in-law has me interested in making a Double Wedding Ring quilt and I would love to do that sometime later on.
