The Best Grandmother's Flower Garden

Sometimes I get a quilt & want to pinch myself. Check out the Grandmother's Flower Garden. 2" squares, all hand pieced. The quilt is owned by a friend of one of my customers mother's. My customer thinks that it was made by the woman's mother.
All the hexagons were carefully centered so each one had the same design. The combinations are fabulous.
What's your guess for the year these fabrics are from? The 40's?

Some people don't like when a beautiful hand pieced quilts gets machine quilted. I think it's better to have it quilted & out to enjoy than in a box in the closet.

More quilts to come.

This is beautiful. Quilted, whatever the method, is always better than not.
