The French Bouquet quilt pattern on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

I love Grandmother's flower garden quilts and found a link to a copy of the original pattern for one version by Eveline Foland posted in 1931 in the Kansas City Star. I just love these vintage patterns.

I recently purchased a set of original newpaper patterns for Eveline Foland's Flower Garden Quilt. I am working on developing a new pattern using these wonderful 80 year old blocks in an updated quilt. Here is a sneak peak of one of the patterns.

Imagine my suprise when I was going through some pictures of old quilts I had saved on my laptop and found this quilt:

And while I am on Flower Garden quilts, here is a picture of an *Amazing* flower garden quilt I recently saw at the Blue Valley Quilters Guild quilt show in Kansas City. I don't recall the quilter's name but her work speaks for itself!
