Something Cheerful


This year’s winter has been very mild, so the garden has been getting attention. Wild flowers have begun to appear. Still, something cheerful in the middle of January would be welcome, something with my garden theme. Here is my choice :

Geraniums from My Garden (42x52½”/1m07 x 1m33, Feb. 1998), 
machine pieced and quilted, some hand-painted fabrics
This quilt appeared at the 1998 International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX. Was it that long ago ? It seems like yesterday. It’s an old friend.
The colors are off in this detail photo, however, the stitching can be seen. I’ll have to photograph it when I see it again. 

 And may your day be cheerful!

Definitely beautiful - and a welcome sight for me after we've had several days of grey dismal rain.
