Fantastic Pair Grandmother's Garden Quilts, Ca 1930, 135 Flowers Each, 10 Spi For Sale

Fantastic Pair Grandmother's Garden Quilts, Ca 1930, 135 Flowers Each, 10 Spi

If you're going to own one or a pair of quilts in this pattern, Grandmother's Garden, then this is THE pair you want to own. First, both quilts are in excellent condition and both match perfectly not only in size but in the color pattern of the flowers. Second, both are quilted at 10 stitches per inch -- a rarity for quilts in this pattern. Third, both quilts have a total of 135 "flowers" (15 rows of 9 flowers per row). This is made possibly by a fourth fact -- each hexagon is a mere 1/2" on a side. So even if you forget about the border and forget about the green boundary between the flowers, that's 4,995 individual hexagons! So each quilt doubtlessly is made up of between 6,000 and 7,000 pieces (hexagons) overall. If that isn't a masterpiece of the quilters art (and patience), nothing is. Moreover, the pair is being offered with but buyer pays $16 for USPS domestic shipping.

The compulsive person in me got a little curious as to how many hexagons are in one of these quilts. So a rough count of the border yielded a number of appx 1,770, while the green border between the flowers came to 1,395. Thus, the approximate total per quilt comes to 4,995 + 1,770 + 1,395 = 8,160 individual hexagons per quit. This is a staggering number. For example, if it takes 2 minutes to make a hexagon, then it took 32,640 minutes to make all the hexagons for these two quilts, which is 544 hours! And that's before the hexagons are sewn together and the quilt quilted!

Oops, forgot the size of the quilts: 85" x 62" each
