What's on the line?

Hanging on the line today is a little quilt from the book "Forget-Me-Nots" from CountryThreads. I love the message on the quilt...........

"I bring fresh showers for thirsting flowers."

It's actually lines from a poem by Shelley and if you want to read the entire poem just go here. Late Saturday night, in fact just about midnight, I heard rain on the roof. I love the sound of rain on the roof. We still have lots of snow on the ground and there are worries about flooding so I wasn't hoping for too much rain, but I did love the sound of it while it lasted (only about half an hour).
This quilt makes me smile. I enjoyed making it and did the angel in fusible applique and then added touches of embroidery and yo-yo's for the flowers. Many of the patterns from Country Threads are more country/primitive and are shown in darker colors in the book. I wanted a fresh springy look and just used scraps to get the colors I wanted. I made this in 2001 after buying the book on "close-out" at Country Threads. I don't think it's available anymore but if you like the pattern you could contact Country Threads. There are four more designs in the pattern booklet and someday I hope to make them all. :-) Someday..........
If you are wondering why I haven't posted about my GO!Baby yet, it's because I am awaiting shipment of the dies that I chose. They are on back order. In the meantime, I am working on a couple other projects. Always plenty of fabric to play with so I'm never bored. :-)
Have a good Monday!
