|Tracy Jachimowicz putting the final touches on the display|
A total of 18 guild members created 21 quilts in answer to the "Show us Your Best Blooms" challenge.
In addition to including flowers, each quilt had to use a piece of this fabric. There are some which require careful study to identify this fabric!
