Giant Springs — a beautiful, colorful, fresh water, bubbling, amazing and very large, natural spring! It bursts forth from the ground near the Missouri River in Great Falls. It’s also part of a beautiful park; situated along the “Rivers Edge Trail” — the jewel of this city! This is the quilt I named for the springs, because the colors are so amazing. There is the brightest and glowing greens of every shade in the underwater plants, and of course, in spring and summer months, the park has lots of flowers too…
What a beautiful place! I had to go to the State of MT website to find this picture, as unfortunately, I don’t have any digital pictures I’ve taken yet. See that cement bridge to the left outer edge of the picture? It’s so cool to walk across it and gaze into the ‘waterfall’ that is created by the rock outcropping outlining the spring itself. I can’t wait to get down there… even though today we woke up to 7 new inches of new snow…plus four more today (Sunday), and it’s been 0 degrees or below, or barely above all weekend.
And… of course, then it’s time to try another decorative stitch. I always highly recommend YLI “Variations” – it’s a 35 weight 100% polyester, with a dash of variation in colors… perfect!
Great big flowers — that is what makes a great flower block. And it’s not like we’re lacking for great inspiration with all the big flower prints that are BLOOMING everywhere in ‘fabric-land!’
