QUILT DAY # 4

This is my last antique quilt and isn't it interesting that this Grandmother's Flower Garden is oblong?
The colors are still really pretty.
Look how this blue was fussy cut. So fun!
Here is a close-up of the blue fussy cut blocks.
The edge blocks are cut in half around the entire quilt. The flowers being an oblong shape gives the quilt such a different feel. I use this quilt on my bed in the spring because it is in really good shape. I just put it on the top of a white coverlet but take it off at night. Thanks for visiting my quilt-a-day.

Fussy cutting is when you cut out a particular design from the fabric to make it fit the shape your want, like the pin wheels being in the very center of the hexagon. They were cut to look like that and not just cut random from the fabric.
