The Flower Garden Quilt – an old traditional Amish Quilt Pattern
Our traditional Amish Flower Garden required no less than several months to complete. The quilt top consists of thousands of hexagon shaped pieces of material. Every hexagon fits precisely into and with neighboring hexagons. Furthermore, colorful prints were carefully selected to be combined into “flowers” resulting in quite the garden.
The quilting is really interesting. Every hexagon is quilted on all six sides except for the flower petals, which are quilted on four sides. The quilting is omitted on the two sides where the petals of the same ring and fabric touch one another. This quilting in conjunction with the selection of prints and color palette makes the flowers really pop. The center of each flower is the same green which unifies the quilt.
You will rarely see this pattern because it requires so much time and effort to design and quilt.
