Flowers and Quilts – You Can Have It All

Uncommon Legacy, 72 x 72 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2009.

Each year I try to plant new flowers in my yard. Most of the time they die because I just do not have a green thumb. That’s another way of saying I neglect them.

This year being even more determined than ever to have hydrangeas in my yard, I hired Mr. Weeks, the gentleman who does my yard, to plant them for me. “Maybe I am using the wrong kind of dirt,” I reasoned. The ones I planted for the last five years all died. I am keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best.

However, being a girl who always has a plan B, I took Uncommon Legacy out of storage for good measure. If I can’t have flowers in my yard, I will have them on my wall.

The blocks in Uncommon Legacy were done by hand using the needle turn appliqué technique. This quilt is part of my treasured heirloom collection.
