Country Garden Small Quilt

This small quilt (12 in X 12 in) was made for the ALQS7.  It is mostly machine pieced with a few small pieces hand appliqued (the center of each flower and the side triangles on the right).  It is machine quilted.


Here is a close up of the small flower


Here is the back of the quilt before I sewed on the sleeve and label.



The block, country gardens (you can get the pattern here if you create an account on Fons & Porter website), is from Mountain Mist.  The pattern dates back to 1941 and was designed by Margaret Hayes of Knoxville, TN.  It can be found in the book:  Mountain Mist Quilt Favorites (published in 1998).
