Traditional Thursday- Antique Flower Garden

DSCF1807I just finished quilting this beautiful antique top.  It is a Grandmother’s Flower Garden design with the added green hexagon “triangles”.  The green hexagons really set off the flowers and break up the solid background.  The flower with the orange interior circle at the top of the photo is the center of the quilt.  The maker then placed a row of yellow flowers around the orange one.  She continued to place the flowers in “circles” of color around the center.  You can see that the purple row was next and the pink.  This quilt top was created by the same piecer as the star quilt in previous blogs.  She had a tremendous eye for color and design.  This was a top worth saving.
