1940s Grandmother's Flower Garden
Professionally washed and in EXCELLENT CONDITION,
this pleasing example of a popular mid-20th century quilt pattern
is distinguished by its solid orange centers and white "outlines" !
The many colors in the beautiful Depression-era cotton prints and solids
are distributed in a nice, balanced way.
Some of the flowers are "fussy cut" ~ with the printed design cut
specifically to show the flower in the center of each hexagon.
(See pink flower below)
The quilt is beautifully made ~ precisely pieced and well hand quilted.
The quilt maker even applied a separate white cotton binding.
Wish I had that kind of patience and skill!
A beauty ready for your bed or wall.
