This is my entry for the 2014 Quilt Alliance contest.
Grandmothers Garden flower was inspired by:
Speer, Julia Patterson. Grandmothers Flower Garden. 1930-1949. From Florida Quilt Project, Florida Quilt Project. Published in The Quilt Index,
I chose a design based on a hexagon. Hexagons are one of the most popular design being used by quilters in 2014.
The fabric for this was dyed in a hexagon shape and the shape was edited to fit into the 16” square format the contest required.
It was machine quilted to emphasize the details of the flower.
I have to admit it is one of my favorite all time quilts of the 396 quilts I have made.
It is a donation and the quilts will be auction on eBay in November to raise money for the Quilt Alliance.
The 3 winners of the contest will be determined by popular vote. You must be a member of the alliance to vote.
The benefits of being a member far outweigh the $25 annual dues.
This link will take you to the page to join the Quilt Alliance:
There were a record 92 entries this year in the Inspired By contest.
Of course I hope you’ll vote for mine, but I also hope you’ll join the Quilt Alliance and enjoy all the benefits it offers.
