Width: 6.75"   Length: 9.75"

Materials/Techniques: Background is pieced with fused plants "growing" over it. Plants are cut from printed fabrics.

Artist's Statement: It is a real thrill when in the spring flowers and other plants volunteer from the leftover seeds dropped the year before, or even from seeds brought by the wind and birds. The surprise of seeing a plant come up where none is expected always seemed to be an extra for the season. Sometimes the plants show up in inconvenient or unacceptable places and maybe that is what happened on this little quilt.

Dedication: To the gardeners among us.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $50.00 for the AAQI.
