Fannye's Flower Garden

Our Guild had a founding member that was right to the point and knew more about quilts than anyone I have ever met. She taught me a lonestar pattern in one of my earliest quilting classes. We lost her a few years ago and her family donated some of her unfinished items to our guild. Last night we had an auction....and I had jumped right in for my favorite. This is a hand pieced flower garden pattern, but each hexagon is first pieced using two fabrics giving it a very non traditional flower garden look. I will have it quilted and it will be used/displayed in my home as a tribute to a great quilter. We miss her!

Hi Nane,
I don't have your email addy, but wanted to thank you for your response on my blog about the cleaning method I heard about. Not sure I would try that one. But maybe someone else has heard of it.... Bobbin
