"The Earth laughs in flowers." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Brave old-flowers! Wall-flowers, Gilly flowers, Stocks! For even
as the field-flowers, from which a trifle, a ray of beauty, a drop of
perfume, divides them, they have charming names, the softest in the
language; and each of them, like tiny, art-less ex-votos, or like medals
bestowed by the gratitude of men, proudly bears three or four

- Maurice Maeterlinck

Of the many subjects that have captivated poets and writers, flowers have occupied one of the most prominent places. The variety of colors, textures and fragrances have inspired the poets and writers of many different cultures to sing the praises of flowers or to use them as metaphors.

Flowers have also served to inspire textile artists. The variety of fabric prints incorporating flowers is immense and always increasing. At J&O Fabrics we carry an extensive selection of flower prints, particularly in novelty weight cotton. Among these quilting fabrics is Daffodil Fields Fabric. The daffodil is also known as the Narcissus, after the mythical youth who became so entranced by his reflection in a lake that he fell in and drowned.

The daffodil in particular has inspired much admiration; e.e. cummings titled one of his poems "in a time of daffodils", while William Wordsworth was so taken by these lovely flowers that his recollections of them gave rise to one of the most famous poems in English: 'I wandered lonely as a Cloud'. This poem reads:

I wandered lonely as a Cloud
That floats on high o'er Vales and Hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced, but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:-
A poet could not but be gay
In such a jocund company:
I gazed-and gazed-but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude,
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the Daffodils.

The design of Daffodil Fields lovingly depicts the beauty of this flower. The design is composed of yellow daffodils with green stems over a white background.

Daffodil Fields Fabric will make an excellent companion to your projects. It can be used for quilts, bed sheets, garments, fashion accessories, pet clothing, draperies and much more.
