Doodling around Grandma's garden progress

Finished the graffiti quilting on this quilt for my great-nephew, which showcases the vintage Grandmother's Garden blocks made by his late Great-Grandmother, Mary.  This was fun, but much more labour and time intensive than I had anticipated. Great way to invent, extend and try out different quilting designs.
Now on to the binding. If you look closely the "label" is incorporated into the design.
The colours are much truer than the previous indoor shot!

Kathryn, I visited your blog after seeing your comment on the SAQA lisst about the webinar. I am fascinated by your incorporating the vintage hexagon pieces into the great-nephew's quilt (also the earlier red/white one). This is a very clever way to use the pieces and also modernize it with your fabulous quilting. I could not find the label, so it must be quilted smaller than I could read. At any rate, kudos to you!
