This small woodland wildflower blooms in the early spring in our mossy woods above their tattered leaves from last year. After the flowers fade, a new crop of bright green leaves springs up. The leaves are a lovely three-lobed shape. The leaves in this quilt are made from scraps of hand-dyed silk from a student from Missoula. Most of the background is from a hand-dyed one-of-a-kind cotton from Judy Bianchi. The flowers in this quilt are barely lavender, hard to show on a computer screen.
