Grandmother Flower Garden

This is the second quilt  of its type made by Irene.  I had a little fun teasing Irene about it because the first quilt she made was so heavy it was difficult to roll forward on my machine. In fact it was so heavy I took it to my bathroom and weighed it; 12 lbs. , I am not in the habit of weighing my customers quilts,  but her first one was unusually heavy.

Totally hand pieced, I don’t know where Irene found the patience.  I did a little pebbling in the  centre of each flower and freehand swirls in the path between them.  The flower  is done with curved rulers in a sort of spirograph like design. This quilt, not as heavy as the last but sure to keep somebody very warm.
