This is always one of my favorite views at Longwood Gardens in the spring.
Tiny geophytes are planted in swaths of color.
These Siberian Squill are my favorites. Of course! My favorite color combination of blue and green.
I tried to piece a small abstract quilt, about 12″ x 12″ with the feel of the meadow colors. I never do very well with this kind of quilting. I love the quilts others do so successfully with this free piecing technique. I think I'll stick to my more realistic style for now.

    Spring is coming. Yay! I love the colors of your small piece. You just needed more and more and more.

  2. Feeling out of your comfort zone is a good thing! Isn’t that how we grow? And by the way I Love your improv field of flowers–it is gorgeous!

  3. I agree with Christine, quilt it and you might like it better. I love it!

    Terry: your realistic style is really worth sticking to. However, I think the improv piece is quite nice…but where is the quilting? You stopped too soon.
