Do Flowers Dream?

Do Flowers Dream? is a quilt that I worked on for over a year. It is a block of the month quilt sponsored by the Intown Quilt Shop. All of the blocks were appliqued by hand. I enjoy participating in Block of the Month programs because, since someone else chooses the pattern and the fabric, it allows you to work outside your normal box.
 
Such is the case with this quilt. These are not my normal colors — bright oranges, lime greens and brilliant yellows are just not me. When I looked at the finished blocks, I thought, “I’ve never seen any flowers that look like that!”
 
But they were so sassy, I wondered, “Do flowers dream of being more than they are like people?”
 
I hope so.

The beautiful custom quilting was done by Janna Bigelow. She perfectly offset my sassy flowers with a swirling wind pattern that makes them look as if they are dancing. This quilt is for sale in my Studio Store.
