Monty's Flowers

EditorAnne

I made this quilt for my mother, Margaret Montague Geldart, in 2012.

Her parents were commercial carnation growers in Victoria and Penticton from 1930s through the 1960s. They also had a flower shop called Monty’s Flowers in Penticton from the 1940s to the 1970s.

Carnations were Mum’s favourite flower.

I hoarded the Turkish-style carnation border fabric for several years before I found the stylized carnation appliqué design in an issue of Quilts from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks. I modified the pieced part of the design and made this wall hanging for Mum’s birthday.
