Grandmother’s Garden hexagon quilt is one of my all-time favorite quilts! The flowers are beautiful, and you can follow the pathways. There are so many hexagons in one quilt! have you ever wondered how long it took your great-grandmother or grandmother to stitch all of those hexagons together with little stitches and hand quilting? I marvel at the workmanship that went into every hexagon!
It took me a few weeks (and a few swear words) to get the pattern correct, using the standard 1inch hexagon and making the entire design modern in the hoop but making sure it kept the old-school look of small handmade stitches. After lots of testing, tweaking, and changing, I finally came up with the Grandmother’s Garden in the hoop with four blocks and set up for pre-cut hexagons and regular applique.
You can stitch the flower blocks (left and right) to make a flower quilt:
Or you can use all four blocks to create a diamond shape pathway before and after the flower blocks.
Or you can use blocks 1 and 2 together to make a diamond-shaped hexagon quilt.
Complete instructions are included for both the pre-cut style (1inch hexagon) and the applique hexagon styles, including important sewing information to properly line and sew the blocks together, so they match up perfectly.
