I made this quilt for the 2012 Cocheco Quilters Guild annual challenge. This year the challenge was to make a quilt inspired by a poem. I chose William Wordsworth’s “My Heart Leaps Up” which starts, “My heart leaps up when I behold a rainbow in the sky.” My fans are the rainbows. I love the message of this poem which is that we need to, throughout our entire life, maintain the sense of awe and wonder that we naturally have as young children. The quilt top is all silk and sateen and has hand embroidered embellishments. It is also hand quilted.
