To Everything There is a Season
I started this quilt as a design project, melding yellow and blue 9-patch blocks into an overlap of green blocks. The result was interesting but too tame for me so I added earth tones, an owl, and a tree. Soon I was into snowflakes and tree blossoms, melding 2 seasons together, and thinking of the Ecclesiastes verse which names this quilt. I hope this is the beginning of a series of Ecclesiastes-inspired quilts.
