Day 3 Early Flower Garden

3 days - and still going strong :)  Trying to just "do it" and not overthink.

I've got a new (antique)  hexagon quilt - grandmother's flower garden but in a unique setting design. The quilt is almost 100 years before the standard grandmother's flower garden -- circa 1830s!!

Love the small flowers and the setting with the blue frame.

Adore the glazed chintz border - yummy


  1. Very tempting to reproduce! Thanx for sharing pictures!

  2. The quilt is lovely, a great setting. What size are the hexagons? What size is the finished quilt please?

  3. That is such an interesting setting--and I do love that border fabric!
    I am really enjoying seeing these vintage quilts from your collection. Thanks for the fun Christmas gift! : )

  4. This is a treasure. Thanks for sharing it.

  5. That is a great setting - it's nice to see something different. Love that border fabric. What a treasure you have!

  6. Love this early mosaic quilt - Especially the six single hexies in the open white areas of each cluster - helps to take up the blank space and give balance to the field of hexagons in each unit. The glazed chintz is especially lovely.

    1. This is Leah Z - btw - need to get my computer savvy on to figure out why my name doesn't appear. Love this thread of your blog!
