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 funny little poem is written by Spike Milligan. I war really stuck with this theme till Irene mentioned Spike. This poem inspired me to make this quilt:
After the background was made, the tree appliqued and the cloud (batting covered with cheese cloth) added it was time for the fun part: punching the holes. I do not want them to start fraying so I put some gel medium around the edges to prevent this. The theme gave me lots of problems, but I am very happy with the result :-).
