Herewith a basket of flowers to all my blog readers. Thank you for your interest. May you have a meaningful Easter Week end.

This quilt was entered in a challenge hosted by the South African Quilters Guild. Sadly it was rejected.(Perhaps also crucified) This was hard for me to accept (I have a badge to prove I am a Master Quilter- so it could not be the workmanship) and I request a reason from the juror. Apparently they selected quilts that would be suitable to be displayed in places where Art would be displayed and this quilt would not fit the criteria.
The appliqued flowers were cut from flower print fabrics and embellished with embroidery handstitches. I thought the drunkard's Path blocks have a ribbon quality. They and the rounded baskets fit the challenge of curves that was the main theme for all the quilts.
