Bohippian Quilt in Georgia Peach
Well, I finally did it! I finally finished my very own Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt. My goodness! A two year endeavor and yep, you guessed it, completely worth it.

About this Bohippian
I made the 70″x74″ size in the pattern. I started this sometime in the second half of 2020 and finished it up a couple of weeks ago. It FEELS SO GOOD to finish such a large and time consuming project.
With this making a little bit here and there, it didn’t really feel that time consuming. It felt like a “thing” my hands did as the rest of me relaxed. It was therapeutic. The pieces in this quilt have gone everywhere I’ve gone over the last one and a half years. And I’ve traveled here and there, stitching on roadtrips, plane travels, and lots of tiny moments in between.
I quilted this one with running continuous feathers. A first for me! It was pretty time consuming as well, but I loved doing it. Here’s a video of that process here.
