Grandmother's Flower Garden

This Quilt was the most popular pattern after 1925. The "modern" quilters loved the endless color combination and ways the blocks could be set together. Thousands of small hexagons were in the finished quilt.

Early names for this quilt were honeycomb and mosaic. This quilt may have been truest to the Colonial Revival's ideal of reproducing American quilts, for the mosaic quilt was indeed made as early as the end of the 1700s.
 
Erected by Owensville Chamber of Commerce.
