The idea for this quilt came from all the dreary gray days that we had in January and February of this year. I really needed some color to break the days and to take my mind off of some issues that I was having at work. The gray background fabric represents all the ice storms we had this year and the colors the spring flowers that will be popping up throughout our neighborhood in a month or two.
The background and backing fabric came from my stash and the colors were hand dyed by Dye Artists (dyeartist.com). The design is based on a pattern developed by Colleen Wise. I quilted in the ditch with smoke colored nylon to enhance the design.
This quilt was finished February 2007 and has turned into a nice cuddle cover for family members.
