Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt

My Great Grandmother made two big Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts. Her quilts feature the color yellow as does my pressed-flower picture. I wish I could say I did that on purpose but alas, I did not. I had an abundance of yellow maple leaves and thought they would work for a quilt.

This picture is made of: maple, butterfly weed, mountain laurel, aucuba, statice, corn husk, Queen Anne's lace, a tendril, birch bark, onion, banana peel, fern, poinsettia, bloody dock, mushroom, Japanese maple and raspberry.

  2. I think it would be lovely to have a set of two or three quilt pieces like this one, either to hang side-by-side in a hallway, or in a vertical line on a narrow wall next to a door or something - not all the quilt pieces just the same, but in colors that go well together. Have you made any "sets" before?

  3. Thank you for the comments!

    Yes,I have purposely given certain pictures similarities so that they could be bought and hung together in as a set. But I don't think anyone has ever bought one of my sets. All the pictures seem to go seperately.

    Thanks for asking!
