The New Hoop ‘N’ Quilt
Grandmother’s Flower Garden
See Judy’s project below.
More Layouts Below

My Grandmother’s Flower Garden (GMFG) quilts are made using the New Hoop ‘N’ Quilt technique. This method does NOT require fusible, batting in the hoop, or cutting fabric in the hoop.  There is no piecing in the hoop. It makes an “impossible” quilt possible.

The finished quilts are not stiff or bulky in any way. Rather, they lay flat, feel soft, draping like a quilt made with more traditional techniques.  What’s more, they are wonderful to use as a bed covers, lap cover, or sofa comforter, as they drape about you like any quilt in which you would bundle up for warmth.

Of course, a sleeve can be added to the backside should you wish to hang your quilt on the wall for viewing. And still they can be made into smaller projects as well.

Hoop ‘N’ Quilt projects are great travel projects – except of course for flying – as you can cut out the pieces while riding in the car, sitting at the park, standing in line, talking on the phone, or anywhere you have a couple minutes of hands free time.

This is a great quilt for using up scrap fabrics.  Still, the scraps must be large enough to use in the embroidery machine’s hoop.

The Quilt Layout


With Straight Edge and Borders
51x61 inches made with the small hexagon


Uneven Edge Without Borders
50 x 65 inches made with the small hexagon

What’s Included

  • Hexagons are in 2 sizes small 7/8” & large 1 3/8” (Measuring one side of the hexagon). The smaller size allows more creative freedom for designs beyond traditional patterns. The larger size requires fewer pieces for the quilt allowing for faster construction on larger projects
  • “Petal” Hexagons have ‘faux’ quilting.
  • Center Hexagon design has extra stitch elements to better resemble a flower center.
  • Includes full color instructional booklet in pdf format

For the informed quilter, the notion that creating a GMFG is challenging comes as no revelation.  However, my approach is both quick and simple.  If you have ever made or wanted to make your own GMFG, I hope you will try my approach and let me know how it compares to more traditional techniques.  I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Judy Hogg’s Project

My husband has been spilling tea/coffee out of our mugs for a few months now and I got fed up with cleaning up after he makes a cuppa - so I have made a few of these for our mugs to rest on ready to make a cuppa and it has worked really well. It obviously reminds him to take care when pouring out.

The colour matches my kitchen cupboards. My husband said to tell you he does really like them!

Thought you might like to see - bit small for grandmas garden quilt!

Thanks and cheers
Judy in Sydney
