Kim McLean’s Flower Garden


Finally finished!  
I started working on Kim McLean’s Flower Garden  quilt back in 2012.  
You can see my method and progress here.


The top has been completed for quite a while waiting in the to be quilted closet along with all it’s friends.


I don’t claim to be a professional quilter and I only quilt my own quilts.  Some days when I go to the machine I have no idea what I am going to do next, so some blocks look better than others.


I am so happy to have this one finished. It’s quite a large quilt 89x91 and it took me a while to quilt it.  (almost as long as it took blogger to upload these pictures, LOL)

Until the next time,
Nancy

  12. Nancy, you did a fantastic job on this quilt. What a work of art, and I usually do not like the loud colors.

  14. Thank you so much Nancy for posting this. Your quilt is lovely. I was able to scroll through your blog to see all your posts on the FG quilt. I have just picked mine up again, so you have boosted me along to keep with it. I have done 14 blocks. 10 to go plus borders. :-)
