Blossoms of Blue

Blossoms of Blue

This was a Mother's Day gift for my dear mother. She is one of my best friends and I am so blessed to have her in my life. It is hard to see, but I stitched in the medium blue border the words to a song that the children sing at church. "I often go walking in meadows of clover, and I gather armfuls of blossoms of blue. I gather the blossoms the whole meadow over. Dear mother all flowers remind me of you. O mother, I give you my love with each flower to give forth sweet fragrance a whole lifetime through. For if I love blossoms and meadows and walking, I learned how to love them dear mother from you." ("I Often Go Walking", by Phyllis Luch.) I used a pattern by Marti Michell called "Summer Bliss" found in American Patchwork and Quilting, August 2012. The outer border is Treasures by Shabby Chic. (Completed, May 2014)
