I'm a fan of finding poems and quotes to fit my quilts... When I read, "A garden isn't meant to be useful. It's meant for joy." by Rumer Godden, I thought, "Yes! As an artist, When I paint, I paint sadness, but when I quilt, I quilt JOY!" Giving a quilt is the best form of JOY there is... So it is with joy, that I present the pattern "Medallion JOY" a garden full of flowers and pattern, row by row, to make a wonderful medallion quilt. Add in some embroidery, and you have a real heirloom!
