How to sew a Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt

If you’ve ever thought about making a quilt with hexagons, Monkey says you’re going to like the announcement at the end of this 3 minute tutorial.

And your next stop:

If you’ve already started a hexagon quilt or Grandmother’s Flower Garden (GFG) with English Paper Piecing (EPP), we think Inklingo will turn everything on its head.

Don’t despair. Your EPP GFG does not have to be a UFO. There is help in the archives. Type “rescue me” in the Search box at the top (above the header) or click here.

Print, cut, sew. It’s that simple.

Skip the tedious steps and have more fun sewing. We think you’ll agree that Inklingo is the quilting tool we’ve always wanted.

This video and the Design Book are things I have wanted to do for a long time. If you would like to put the video on your web site or blog, you can. Copy the “embed code” from this link.

I hope you like the Design Book and video. Comments or suggestions?

PS  If you’re looking for something else, the Search feature up there (above the header) will help you find it in the archives. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, please let me know.

UPDATE AUGUST 2012  There is a new video showing how to sew Grandmother’s Flower Garden by machine too.

  1. Hallo Linda,

    Dat heb je goed gedaan. Mijn complimenten en felicitaties. Heb veel leesvoer gehad en kan mooi straks aan de gang.
    Nog bedankt voor de condoleance. Ben net een week terug en hoop nu mijn eigen leven weer op te pakken. De quiltcursussen beginnen ook weer.
    Hartelijke groeten

  2. Oh My Goodness Linda! This is a fabulous post! Great videos and I just read through your Design book and was Gob Smacked at just how much work you have put into it. It is brilliant!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
    I loved the video of the wee visitor to your veranda (which is awesome btw) and you played what has become my favourite piece of classical music 😉 though please don’t ask me to name it 😉

  3. Hi Sue, Thank you for letting me know about the link. Now you know all my secrets. LOL I use a previous web page as a template when I make a new one. It is very tedious work and sometimes I miss something. I’m glad you caught it for me. I think you will love the info in the new Design Book!

  4. The Design Book is awesome. The illustrations and information is invaluable to all quilters. Now I know what you have been up to. Thanks again for keeping us educated and motivated.


  5. Haven’t got to the design book yet, but the video is terrific. I have been making diamond hexagon blocks the Inklingo way since the beginning of the year, and I learned something new in the video. One thing–on the Design Book page, there is a link that says “main Hexagon page”, just before the video clip. That link took me to the Storm at Sea page–I think that must not be correct?

  6. Wow, Linda. Do you just call that a Design book?! It is so much more. I just downloaded it and browsed through it but it is too much to take in at once. I am always amazed at how thorough you are. You thought of everything!! I just can’t believe you spend so much time on this and then make it available for free… Thank you so much!

  7. Linda, this is exciting and I can’t wait to download and view the design book. For some reason the video isn’t loading on my little laptop so will try it on my house computer.
    I wanted to let you know also that I did not get an email notice of an update on your blog. I will register again and see if it works.
