Blogger's Quilt Festival..My Flower Garden

This quilt is special to me because of the creative energy needed to make the block medallion quilt. The orphan flower block from Mary Lou Weideman's workshop many moons ago sat in a box unused. In the making do spirit, I decided to make a quilt around the orphan block.

What a great finish for a UFO block. And the logcabin turned out great as did the snowballs (love the giraffe back).
Thanks for commenting on my 1890 antique schoolhouse quilt.
