A new quilt on Etsy! You can check it out at here.

This quilt is 11 by 11 inches and has an exaggerated trapunto feel. Inspired by the African American heritage, I created this quilt in honor of Summer!


O Spirit of the Summertime!
Bring back the roses to the dells;
The swallow from her distant clime,
The honey-bee from drowsy cells.

Bring back the friendship of the sun;
The gilded evenings, calm and late,
When merry children homeward run,
And peeping stars bid lovers wait.

Bring back the singing; and the scent
Of meadowlands at dewy prime;—
Oh, bring again my heart's content,
Thou Spirit of the Summertime!
- William Allingham
