Quilt Details: Grandmother's Flower Garden

This quilt is the first that Jinny ever made. While living in India in the early 1970s, Jinny began this traditional patchwork pattern using the fabric she had at hand:  hand-dyed and hand-printed Indian cottons. The rich, vivid colors, with variations that come with the hand-dyeing process, were so different from the traditional Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts.

Jinny attributes her color sensibilities to her early experiences using Indian fabrics.

Completed 1974. Although no specific pattern is available, this is a traditional pattern that can be easily found in quilting books and online.
