Once upon a time I bought a yardage of fabric with very wide floral stripes and narrower decorative strips. Over time I deconstructed it to use the best of the florals on a quilt (see circled areas on photo).
Then, later, I combined the narrower stripes with other random fabrics to create this quilt (again, see circled areas).
What I was left with was the parts of the wider strips with the less desirable floral areas. I could get 21 squares out of these.
I framed them out with 1" strips of a faded-looking floral that wouldn't draw attention to itself.
These were sashed with a dark green marbled print and set in a 4x5 arrangement (20 total).
The border was selected to pull colors from the blooms in the blocks.
All-in-all I think it looks very old-fashioned - like a vintage couch in a 'granny's parlor' so that led to the naming of it.
I used my domestic machine to quilt with an over-all meander.
