Quilts from Grandmother's Garden: A Fresh Look at English Paper Piecing provides a fine set of projects inspired by the Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt tradition, teaching how to sew hexagons into applique units for lovely floral designs. Ten projects include a wall quilt and numerous flowers, leaves and nature scenes that can all be created using 1/4" to 1/2" hexagon shapes. Patterns and color photos throughout lend to a lovely gathering of unique projects based on an old tradition, and perfect for quilters seeking something different.
