Summer Of Color - Week 2

Garden Of Love

I created this piece using a vintage pieced
Grandmother's Flower Garden
unquilted patch.

The pattern name and the vintage fabrics
were perfect to accompany this photo of
my maternal grandparents on their wedding day in the 1930s.

I am guessing that the fabrics, buttons and pom-pom trim are all from the 1940s.
