My grandma just gave me a bunch of unfinished quilt pieces she got at an auction a long time ago. Even though these aren't my taste, I really
like the idea of finishing a project someone already put a lot of time and love into. What did the original owner intend to do with these???
There are 3 different sizes of flowers, I assume to be appliqued. What are these flowers called?
Twenty large flowers, 12" across, mostly blue and another color:
Twenty-nine medium flowers, all colors:
The cardboard template for the center was in the bag.
Six small flowers, three finished, three not. I didn't take pictures of them. I'm pretty sure the projects ended with some frustration over the smaller flowers. Two of the petals are sewn on backwards, and one of the flowers has too many petals...
Why so many flowers?? Does anyone know of a project that would have used ALL of them? Or, was this person making flowers for more than one project at a time? Why 29 medium flowers? Am I missing one?
Any thoughts about what this person had planned would be greatly appreciated.
The other mysterious thing I got were these four panels. All four only having binding to finish the edge on the bottom. One is going the opposite direction than the rest. What were they going to be used for?? (They look like placemats to me, but why weren't all sides finished at once?)
