Hi Everyone! Before I was a paper crafter/card maker, I was a quilter. I spent my 20’s and 30’s making quilts and wallhangings for my family as well as baby gifts, wedding gifts, you name it. The more traditional the pattern, the better as far as I was concerned. Here’s a classic quilt pattern called Grandmother’s Flower Garden that dates back to the 1700’s. Large pieces of fabric were scarce and expensive in those days so patterns which pieced together small bits of fabric were popular. Women would sit and piece hexagons together to make whole quilt tops filled with flowers. Here’s an example of this pattern, pieced by Velma in ’32, as seen on lovelyworld.typepad.com.
The Hexagon Punch is perfect for making these flowers, so much easier than piecing a quilt! I mounted them on a piece of Real Red card stock then snipped the edges free hand. I was looking for a little contrast, and with the red center heart, it pops. Hope you enjoyed this one, and thanks for stopping by!
