"Spring Blossoms" celebrates the return of Spring with the annual flowering of the cherry blossoms.

Every year, I eagerly await the first blossoming cherry trees, which symbolize the arrival of Spring. After a long, dark winter, I marvel at the clouds of delicate pink and white blossoms that adorn the trees. I love walking through the trees as the petals float and drift in the breeze like pink confetti, then gently carpet the grass below.

This original design is the third in a series of art quilts celebrating the changing seasons of the West Coast of Canada.
You can see the first two here:

This art quilt was machine pieced and free motion quilted on my domestic sewing machine, and is 46" by 47". The binding is folded entirely to the back like a facing, to give the quilt a cleaner, more modern look. A sleeve is sewn to the back so the quilt can be hung from a dowel.
