Last fall Ginger and her newest grand baby to be, took a canoe trip on the Sante Fe and Ichetucknee rivers where springs pump clean blue water from the earth’s interior. Actually the little river runner’s parents-to-be were there too. This baby quilt was based on that experience.
The idea for the center of the quilt, which is a spring, came from a recent cover of ‘Quilter’s Newsletter’ magazine. Waterfowl were aplenty on the trip as well as grassy flora. A fabric from the online store Fabric.com was perfect. The canoe is accurately proportioned to the real thing.
