Barn Quilt Spotlight - Grandmother's Garden
Updated: Mar 15, 2020
The Grandmother's Garden Barn Quilt is one that you cannot miss as you travel down Grey Road 40 towards Highway 26 near Clarksburg. This spectacular Quilt pattern is one that is not only a popular quilt to sew but makes a spectacular Barn Quilt. The colourful flowers against the white background pop off of the greying wood of the building it is on. Sandy came out and also helped with the painting of her barn quilt to add to the sentiment. A short but sweet story accompanies this Barn Quilt, please read below...
I picked the Grandmother's Garden quilt in memory and to honour by maternal grandmother Sarah (Sadie) Green from Heathcote. I remember as a young girl she had a quilt frame set up in her dining room and grandma and the ladies institute would quilt while we were under foot. She passed away in 1970 and I never had the privilege to quilt anything with her as I took up quilting many years later. I am working on a English paper piecing quilt and will put it together as Grandmother's Garden lay out. I enjoy passing on my love of quilting to my granddaughter Olivia, and waiting for my other granddaughter Lauren to get a little older before I start with her.
Thank you to Gerald and Sandy for joining our trail and starting the interest growing in the Town of the Blue Mountains area.
