    Grandmother's Flower Garden has always been a favorite of mine, but I want to do it in a more modern setting, not the straight rows, more like scattered flowers as you would see in a garden.

    I've done it, and more than once, and not just with fabric. I've done the same thing with patterns, gadgets, quilt books and magazines - I've bought duplicates of all these things!
