Several years ago, I think about 6 or 7, I decided to start a project that would be one that I could work on as a handwork project without worrying how long it would take. A friend had recently been working on an English Paper Pieced Grandmother's Flower Garden project, and I thought it looked intriguing. (yes, it is her longterm project too!). So, I found some of the paper templates, collected some fabrics and began. When i had accumulated about a dozen of the "flowers", I thought that was enough. I contemplated how to set them together and decided to use 10 of them. After appliqueing the center down onto a solid piece of background fabric, I then decided it needed some appliqued birds and flowers. That part was not so much fun, but I finished it last night! Today i basted the quilt top, and now I need to decide what sort of quilting to do!!
(Oh yes, I might add more borders later, but this is about the biggest size I feel like I can handle on my little machine)
I guess I might have to mull this one over a bit.
