Luz Seidensticker's quilt, Artichocky, was inspired by a photograph of an artichoke flower taken in her garden. The mandala design was based on her own interpretation of the Costa Rica Cartwheel quilt. The piecing is impeccable. Take a look.

Artichocky by Luz Seidensticker won First Place, Pieced, Large, sponsored by Marti Michell, at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2019.
