Were it not for the trapezoidal shape of this Grandmother's Flower Garden, one would mistake it for a doll quilt rather than the chair pad it is. Hexagons are appliqued to the backing. Wool; two small breaks in the fabric show the paper foundations of the hexagons. Beautiful colors are well planned and create a "fence" around the flower gardens. Pennsylvania Mennonite; circa 1900. Measures 16" x 17 3/4" at its largest.
