I Like Thursday # 92 ~ G is for Grandmother's Flower Garden


Here is my uppercase G Block for my Alphabet I Spy Quilt

G is for Green

Green is one of my favorite colors in quilts. 

I love the green text fabric in the sashing on my 

Sundrops Jolly Bar Jazz Quilt


G is for Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt

Here is a hexagon flower that I hand stitched with the plan to make a 

Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt.

It was made in 2009 when I was first learning to hand stitch.

Although I have a stack of these, I will need many more to make a quilt. 

This was not made with a template like traditional EPP.

Can you tell how it was made?

I will be posting how I made this soon.

G is for Gratitude

I am grateful for my family and friends

and all life's gifts.

Life is Happening

I may not be able to make my alphabet blocks for a few days. 

I hope to catch up soon with these blocks.

I will be away a few days spending time with a loved one,

who is being released from the hospital.

I will be taking my hexies and my hand work

to sit and stitch.

Be Back Soon! 


Thank you for visiting me!

I liked green but was not a huge fan. Jeff loved green and yellow and I find that it makes me happy, isn't that funny? Good idea to take your handwork, thinking of you and your loved one as you care for them. Oh and your G is gorgeous. I also love your jolly bar quilt it is so happy.

This is lovely. I miss my grandmother's quilting. She was a Pine Tree quilter for many years. I have one of her master piece baby quilts that she made with kitties on it. Thank you for sharing and giving me the memory of my grandmother. Enjoy the rest of the A2Z challenge and if you have time I could use some help in my Garden

Cheers,
Crackerberries
