Spring Rain will be a featured project in the Sept/October issue of Fons and Porter Magazine. Seems like an odd time to feature this little quilt but who am I to quibble with the powers that be.
I designed this quilt after driving to Paducah a couple years ago. You know when you leave upper Illinois in April we sometimes still have snow on the ground. We are lucky if the Daffodils are blooming! But as you drive down highway 57 straight down the state of Illinois, as each hour passes the landscape turns greener and lusher and the red buds are beginning to bloom. By the time you reach the end of Illinois and pass into Kentucky the dogwoods are blooming and everything feels fresher and cleaner and spring like. I always love driving to Paducah in April.
I hope you enjoy this project.
