Journal Quilt from Summer ’09

9" x 7.5", quilt

9" x 7.5", quilt

This small piece was composed after an unusually grey June.  Here in Eastern Massachusetts, we had one of the least sunny Junes on record — not the wettest, but the greyest.   And, it did rain A LOT.

When the sun finally came out, I made this piece.  I was eager to get gardening, get outdoors, get digging.  The background toile features an antique plow or wheelbarrow.  The waterlily has the feel of a summer sun.

I added the strip of vintage lace and the disk of organza after many weeks of following Jude Hill‘s work online.  I encourage you to take a peek!
