Artist Description: The origin of the word "wreath" is an old English word "writha," related to writhe, meaning a twisted band of ring or leaves or flowers in a garland…dried fruit or flowers that were originally placed in a circle to symbolize the promise of spring. A wreath is an arrangement of flowers or decorative objects in a ring used in decorations for walls and doors. A colorful quilted wall hanging will add color to any room decor. The wreath is associated with traditional evergreens going into Christmas season for a symbol of strength. Wreaths can be used for ceremonies and for changes in the home.The block in this quilt is from the book, Baltimore Basics, by Mimi Dietrich.
