"The title refers to the environmental song by Tom Paxton, and also the three watercolor-on-crepe panels that were given to me, artist unknown. I machine-stitched the various flowers that are attached between the panels, in cotton threads. I added a dragonfly - metallic threads, organza wings - to accompany the painted one in a panel. Milkweed references the trend to “grow native.” Quilt has sleeve on the back, with wood slat and wire, ready to hang."
