One Flower Wednesday

My first ever One Flower Wednesday!

I am so excited to finally be able to participate. I made this flower yesterday, but I'm counting it!


I have wanted one of these quilts since before I was a quilter. I have always loved old, vintage things, and Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts have always been right at the top of my list. I knew they were sewn by hand and always just assumed they would be way too hard for me.

I even tried making a flower once and gave up because I was too frustrated. I have been researching all the tutorials I could find and took a little information from each. And now I have a flower with plans for many more!

Here's to many more "One Flower Wednesdays!"

I just started making these flowers and joined the group, too. Your flower looks beautiful! It is much easier than I thought it would be, too.

Welcome, welcome!! I am so glad you joined us. I started about three weeks ago.
I too have always wanted to make one of these. Last week's blog was about my grandma's that I have that she made back in the thirties. I too, am making mine with 1930s prints.
You are off to a great start as your flower is soooo lovely!!
