Once again I've entered one of the weekly contests sponsored by the Quilting Gallery. The theme for this one features group quilts. My submission is this quilt made up of blocks featuring "flowers in a container" created by Smoky Mountain Quilt Guild members of Thursday Bee back in 2005.
Psycho Deco Fleurs - 32"x 41"
The sashing and border fabrics give an art deco influence to the piece. "Silk" flowers are attached by their embroidered centers to border patterns, while old buttons from my collection secure the origami folded flowers to the center block.
The piece is heavily machine quilted with designs unique to the pattern of the block and its background fabric.
I'm distressed to say this quilt was stolen from the Cliff Dwellers gallery in Gatlinberg, Tennessee.
