This is my award-winning crazy quilt, "Crazy Diamonds" in my garden. That's an Apothecary Rose to the left. Apothecary roses date back to at least the 14th century and are one of the variety of roses I use in some of my herbal products. It has a deep fragrance. The crazy quilt I stitched completely by hand. All the piecing, embroidery, painting and embellishments (even the sashing) was done by hand.
