Plants have had symbolic as well as utilitarian meanings since the beginning of civilization. Mary's Garden was a place of beauty and pleasure, dating from medieval times. It was a sacred area that might represent the Christian soul, enclosed in the body, or the Church, and formed of the body of the faithful. The 10 quilting projects represent flowers from Mary's Garden. Make a single flower for a cushion, a small wall hanging using nine blocks, or use a combination of the blocks for a larger wall hanging. Accompanying patterns and design tips will allow you to choose your own blocks, setting, and size. Chapters include appliqu?basics and how to "re-create" Mary's Garden after you've completed your blocks. This book is perfect for seasoned quilters looking for something new and unique to make.
