This is a bittersweet quilt for me. My Mom was failing and I realized that the next "phase" of our lives together would be me sitting quietly in her room while she faded away.
I remember I ran back to my house, drafted the 60 degree triangle and cut wedges from a Artfabrik hand-dye from Melody Johnson and Laura Wasilowski and brought them back down to Mom's (she lived 4 doors down) and began to hand piece them in Mom's room.
You can see the fabric drifted from blue to green to yellow to orange to red. Each color I paired with bright and happy fabrics just to fill my eyes with pleasure.
I think its true - quilting can save lives!
