Holes in the sky

There are holes in the sky
Where the rain gets in
But there ever so small
That's why the rain is thin
 
This poem is written by Spike Milligan. For Sky is the Limit the March theme was poem. And while doing my research I discovered that poems are not my thing. In other words I got completely stuck on this one till Irene mentioned Spike. After some googling I found this funny little poem and it inspired me to make this quilt.


First I made the quilt, background, tree and cloud (batting covered with cheese cloth). The next step was to punch holes through it. I never did something like this and I admit it is fun to do:-). The holes are protected by some medium. After all I don't want them to go fraying. Size is 12"x12". I am linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday.

EVERYTHIHG about this piece is perfect!! The colors, the quilting, especially the holes! AND a perfect representation of the poem as well! You hit this one out of the park my friend! Did you wince when you punched that very first hole?? Great innovation!
