Sew & Tell - Laurel's Flower Garden Quilt

I don't exactly remember when laurel started this quilt because she was making many other things at the time. It all started when she found out that her sister was having a baby girl. She was sooooo excited about the news. Yep, she is a brand new aunt to baby Isla who is happily lying down on her aunt's hand stitched quilt. The pattern is called Grandma's Flower Garden which was very popular in the 1930's. Laurel used, oh, boy, the English paper piecing method so her hexagon pieces are perfectly shaped. Laurel chose grey for the background to make the flowers pop. I think grey has turned the 1930's to 2011, "modern" meets "traditional." It looks fantastic! Thanks, Laurel!
