My Mom passed away in August of 1996. I woke up yesterday morning missing her more than I have in awhile, and I'm not sure why. It was Labor Day weekend - not her birthday or a major holiday or the day she and my Dad got married. It was just one of those days. I started wondering where the Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks were that she left me. She made enough blocks to make a quilt for my son and daughter-in-law. She put their top together and paid someone to hand quilt it for them, and they have it on their bed. She became too ill to finish a quilt for my daughter, so she left me the blocks and asked that someday I put the top together for her and see that it was finished.
These are some of the blocks that she made. At one time I started sewing the white around some of the blocks.
