I made the background to this quilt top at a retreat. I did not like it plain so I decided to add the sunflowers. While thinking about the sunflowers I decided to add a flower pot. It speaks of sunny days. The background is quilted using the stitch-in-the-ditch method. The sunflowers, stems, leaves and pot are appliqued on and quilted using a satin stitch.

The inspiration for this quilt was Edgar Allen Poe's poem "The Raven". I had a piece of black fabric with a watermark pattern that reflected a raven's iridescent look and while thinking about various quilt designs, Poe's poem came to mind. After reading the poem again and looking at some old drawings, the following design evolved. After knocking at the door and not gaining entrance, the raven flew in through an open window and perched on the statue over the door. The raven spoke to Poe, saying "Nevermore"as Poe's departed love, Lenore, slips away to her grave where another raven stands guard. Much of the fabric is dark in color reflecting the tone of the poem so would benefit from a little spotlight to pick up the details of the three ravens in the quilt. The quilt includes a hanging sleeve for ease in displaying.

This quilt can't help but make you think of spring. The cheery bright colors of the tulips and the happy little green frogs brings it right to mind. This quilt will be a wonderful addition to any child's room.
Binding is machine stitched on both the front and back.
This quilt was designed to resemble a piece of stained glass artwork. Hot air balloons rise over a series of fields, vineyards, foothills, and low mountains. The area I live in has an annual Balloon Stampede and I always enjoy watching the balloons soar over the landscape. That event provided the inspiration for my design of this quilt.
