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
