In the summer of 2007 we stayed with Ryan's parents while we were waiting to move into our house.

All my studio supplies were packed in storage and I figured I could handle a summer without sewing, but that only lasted about a week and a half!

I headed off to the fabric store and decided to make a hand pieced grandmother's flower garden. I chose colors for the quilt that I was planning to paint in the house: green dining room, yellow tv room, orange library, and white molding.

I finished all the piecing that summer and this year, I hand quilted it. It will shortly adorn the wall in the tv room.

They say that a great quilter can quilt something like 12 stitches to the inch. Pish Posh! My stitches are big 'n chunky and I love them! What do you think?
