While flying, I completed the 19th block for Grandma's Flower Garden Quilt. I started these in about 1994, and have apparently only averaged one per year(!). since it has been in the works for so many years, the blocks are a real mixture of old and new fabrics. This is my 'travel' project, so most of them have been done on airplanes/airports. 8yrs ago I finally started writing the dates and places on the back of each block , after I realized I couldnt remember which one I had made first.
This one actually says AZ , Nov 2012 because I did most of it while visiting the in-laws during the holidays.
Here is the incomplete block that actually says Seattle, Feb 2013.
And here are some of them last time I 'auditioned' border fabric. Funny, I saved a green for years for this quilt, several times wanting to cut into, then switched to a different green a few years ago, and now I am considering something like this mint green shabby chic. I dont think I actually have enough of this particular one though..
I really need to decide on a fabric and start the bordering patches though.
I prefer someone inherit this as a completed quilt!
Maybe peach? Yellow-orange? Or peach-on-white?
