“Foundations” Quilt

I finally finished the quilt commissioned by a friend.  She had seen several art quilts and fell in love. Then she completely trusted me to just come up with something…. Deep down I thought I could do it, but there was a larger part of me that thought I had bit off much more than I could ever chew. I broke through a lot of different fears during the process. The quilt evolved and changed – just like I was evolving and changing artistically. I am amazed at the final product and humbled at the way God works through my hands and pops ideas into my head from nowhere.

It’s titled “Foundations”. The words at the roots represent a firm family foundation: faith, honor, integrity, trust, hope, passion, purpose. The flowers (children) springing up are the result of those roots, their ancestors (in the leaves) serving as a protective covering in the branches above.

Words stamped into the “ground.
Children grow under a cover of love.
Ancestors watch from among the leaves.
