WIP Update!

I just had to share with you all a pic of my Grandmothers Garden Quilt I have been working on *mumble mumble mumble* years (OK its four, but who's counting???)



I have about two rows sideways to go and I am busy squaring the whole sucker up.. it just fits on my kitchen floor. It looks heaps longer than wider, but I wanted a decent pillow tuck for it, as I tend not to do that, I get bored so I finish quilts off too short! LOL



The sides I thought I'd do something a wee bit different, I used yellow for all the centres as there isn't many yellow hexagon flowers in the middle... and I used the half green ones as flowers.. now I haven't seen anyone else do anything like this, so I like that is a little different..

I will hand quilt it, so that'll probably take me another 4 years!

It's looking great! I do like the unique way you're doing the edges.

Wow Lissa, it looks great. So pretty. Wish I was brave enough to start something like it but I just know I will not finish it.LOL

Love the edges ! That would take me four lifetimes, not four years.

Jodie said...

I love it! Well done. Jodie

It is lovely! But I think my mum has you beaten - she's been working on her version of that quilt for 25 years and counting ;-)

Love those green half hexagons.

Debbie said...

you know you can't rush these things....4 years is very reasonable for a hexagon quilt this size!! I think you have real patience to still be working on it...I would have made it into a table runner a long time ago! ;)

do like the way you are spreading the "Insanity" through blog land too!! LOL
