In Wisconsin, trillium bloom in mid-May. These flowers are spectacular because of their simplicity! These blossoms just cry out to be included in my quilts! In real life, the flower is of modest size; three white petals, 3 small green sepals, and 3 larger leaves. The yellow stamens in the center are extremely delicate. As the plant begins to age, the petals start to turn a soft pink and eventually begin to curl and wither.
These wild flowers are protected, but I’m lucky enough to have them growing in my back yard and right near my front door. The colors in this quilt are so lush, rich and saturated that it has already become one of my favorites.
It is machine appliquéd with decorative threads, using both variegated and solid colors. The machine quilting enriches the surface with curved and wavy lines that mimic the veins in the flowers and leaves. There are two fabrics used for binding the outer edges, and light plaid and a dark green stripe.
This quilt is also available as a pattern, it's one of my favorites. For information, go to the Patterns option on the left side.
