Auntie Green's Garden

For about a year I've been day-dreaming about making an antique quilt that I fell in love with the minute I saw it - Auntie Green's Garden.  I searched the internet to find the pattern only to learn that there wasn't one available.  I found a few possible leads but they all fell through.  One of the ladies I exchanged emails with suggested I try to draw the pattern myself.  I've been carrying that idea in my head for all of this time and finally decided to see if I could do it.  It's a large applique quilt so seemed like a challenge I wasn't sure I could handle.  Yesterday, I finally decided I'd give it a whirl and see if I could make it happen.  Here's my drawing of the center medallion and a picture of the antique quilt I saw and fell in love with.

That is so pretty Linda! You can certainly reproduce it your self. Looking forward to following along as you make it.
