Flower Garden

This is a project that I am hand piecing, and I will hand quilt. I started it some months ago and it will take me a long time to achieve it, as I keep this work mainly for our Monday's meetings with my friends. I am not in a hurry as I work on other quicker projects together, that I piece with my sewing machine.
