Here are pictures of Carol's Vintage Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt.  Carol is my sister-in-law's sister who we stayed with when we were in Ludlow England in 2008.  At that time she brought out a partially done quilt that she had started when she was about 12 (if I remember correctly) and asked if I would like to take it home, which I did, and then it sat in my closet until 2013 when I brought it out to show my quilting buddies, in particular Bonnie who is one of those amazing people that enjoys finishing up other people's half done projects.  Well, with Bonnie's help we got it all put together and added the cream border.....and again it waited until last month (Feb 2014) when I took it to Kismet Quilts (a lovely quilt shop in Port Alberni, BC that does amazing machine quilting) and they quilted it for me.  I put the binding on the day I got it back and now it is just waiting for Bonnie to get back from holiday to see it before I return it to Carol.  Won't she be surprised to see the finished project after about 45 years in the making!
