The Flower Garden Quilt

Here are two more of the embroideries. (Click to enlarge) I just googled Ruby McKim's Flower Garden Quilt and came up with this website with pictures of an antique quilt made with these patterns. Thought you might want to take a peek.

Click on the link above to see the old quilt and pictures.

Enjoyed looking at the flower quilts and put the site in my faves so I can look at all the other stuff too!

Janet said...

Thank you. I down loaded the pics from the web site you gave too. Nice to see how they quilted it too.

Oh, that would make a beautiful quilt. I wish I had more time to sew.

We found it inside another quilt and the plan is to make a new one, I have some of the pattern squares but now thanks to your post in 2009 I have a complete set.
