triptych 7

Thank you for all of your kind comments about my triptychs. I am just popping in with words to give Golly Bard credit for the lovely spring fabrics I used in my Persephone quilt. You will find a link to her Spoonflower shop on her blog. Stitching on this quilt helped me move from the seemingly endless winter here in Vermont into the extraordinary spring we are enjoying. I did not actually quilt it, but rather hand tied the layers together using pearl cotton. I also sewed the binding on by machine, using this tutorial.

Can you see the wee bird perched near the top of our lilac tree? I think she might have been whispering to the buds, "Open, open, open".


  1. The views truly are stunning Karen. I have been enjoying your triptych's very much. Beautiful shades of nature.

  2. I just stopped by and saw that you've been doing triptychs, Karen, so I went back and looked at all of them! You live in a most gorgeous place!!! Wow!
    I love your Persephone quilt - the essence of spring! Your talents are boundless! Thanks for sharing!

  3. This is my favourite so far your quilt, gorgeous colours and perfect for spring xxx
