The Civic Garden Center Block Challenge
Each year the Civic Garden Center of Cincinnati
puts on a Quilter's Tea with a speaker, wonderful food and delicious teas.
As a part of the day they present a quilt block challenge in the months leading up to the tea.
The blocks are judged and hung at the tea.
Over the following year they are made into quilts to be auctioned as a fund raiser. 
This years theme is
"Enchanted Botanicals"

my entry began by using the required fabric
and cutting the shapes to match my sketch of enchanted lady slippers

the flowers were placed on the required background fabric 
to create a 12 1/2"x 12 1/2" block 

 Here is the finished block and details

Welcome 2015
and Happy New Year to All
My Resolution for 2015
concerning this blog
is to try to be a "little more" involved in posting to my blog.
Actually, I do not do resolutions.
What I have been doing for the past 10 years 
is to write a list of aspirations.
Things I aspire to accomplish during the year.
So to be more clear,
on my list I have included 
"I aspire to post more often in 2015 
than I posted in 2014"
Hope you will be following
and Enjoy!
See ya soon - Robbie
