English Flower Garden Quilt

This is a quilt I just finished putting the binding on. The blocks were from a block of the month club from High Country Quilts in Colorado Springs. I was glad to see that it was still there when I looked online, it's a great store. We lived in Colorado Springs over 8 years ago! Yes, it does take me along time to get things done!

The original blocks had art nouveau flower appliquéd in them, but I'm not a really big fan of that style, so I replaced them with Grandmother Flower Garden flowers. I love the bright colors of the quilt, I think that originally drew new to sign up. The blocks are hand pieced and the borders were put on my machine and then machine quilted.

What a lovely, bright quilt!

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that takes a long time to finish things. I have BOM blocks made and sitting in the closet.....waiting for me to set them together....for 2002 thru 2005.
