Grandmother's Flower Garden
You can see how the the maker was still in the process of making it larger. I have a couple bags of partial pieces and hexie flowers. I believe the white is a percale sheet (which would have made it extra slippery to piece these little guys)
This is the worst spot for fullness. There is actually a very small pleat in the fabric. I am trying to decide if I should take the quilting out her and see if I can work in the fullness.
I used a pantograph called baptist fan on this quilt with Thinsulate batting. I would have used cotton, but I needed more loft to take up some of the fullness. I used King Tut thread on the top with Aurifil 40 weight in the bobbin. This is one of my favorite combinations for quilting. I love the texture and warmth that Thinsulate batting provides.
