How Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts were made This is not to diminish the work that went into a 20th century Grandmother's Flower Garden.
During the first decades of the 20th century most quilt makers aspired to make at least one Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt.
These quilts may have been made up of slightly larger hexagons and were more often sewn together with a running stitch but finishing one was still a major accomplishment.
Add to that the fact that the binding often followed the lines of the hexagon resulting in interesting but also more difficult bindings. The border in the picture shown in this section is delightful in its use of multiple rows of hexagons for the border.
