Rescue Quilt

This Grandmother's Flower Garden variation was found at a garage sale, unfinished, neglected and abused. With some and extra TLC, soap and water, removal of large, orange rug yarn ties and disintegrating batting and backing, and quite a few hours, it is finished. Except for the small green and red print hexagons that surround each flower and the green flower centers, I found very few duplicates of fabrics (mostly feed sack prints) in the rest of the quilt top. I kept thinking that the spirit of the lady who first started the handstitched piece was urging me on. I hand quilted each hexagon with a variety of colors of embroidery floss. The back is pieced with yellow and green.
