Diamond Flower Garden
"Flower Garden " is a well known traditional pattern. The pattern used for this flower garden is an abberation of the original rectangular pattern as this quilt is constructed in a diamond pattern using six sided piecework, a very difficult, time consuming construction. The quilt top is hand pieced, hand quilted using traditional batting for middle construction, backing is white cotton material(see Backing Detail below). Quilt size is 6'1'' wide X 7'1" long. Diamond Flower Garden was constructed circa 1950-55 and has never been on a bed, as it was stored in one of six cedar chests that held the estate collection from Marie Miller, resident of Chilhowie, VA.
