As day begins and the sun rises, there is the promise of today. This quilt is part of my series made during the pandemic that encourages everyone to live in the present and enjoy what we have. The flow of the colors and the unusual combinations create an overall abstract landscape. This quilt celebrates the tradition of quilt making in which many fabrics and intense workmanship add to the overall effect. The small details add to the whole of the quilt. I created it by piecing and sewing many thin strips of cotton fabric going through the cotton batting onto the back. Then I intensely quilted it to add even more substance and texture. If you look closely there are many stories in the fabrics I selected. These allow the viewers to meditate and create your own history that can change as the viewers mood changes.
