The black fish….after i stamped the fish i thought this is too boring. There is always a unique one in the crowd which brought me to the thought that since i can remember as much as i have wanted to be like the “crowd” somehow even by virtue of doing nothing i never fit the mold. That is ok with me. I feel i am like the tortise in the story of the tortise and hare. I may be slow..but it is my journey……

  1. I was wondering if you are hand sewing this whole quilt? I really like the colors. One of the things that I have notice is that a lot of the quilts that I like are made from solids…but I don’t have a lot of solids as I am always attracted to textures…and colors. So I really like how you have been able to use printed fabrics with out it looking chaotic.

    • Thank you! This whole quilt thing started out as a way of telling my pilgrimage or spiritual journey for myself. My partner/husband encouraged me to start a blog. I wanted a cloth to have as a “spiritcloth” for meditation, prayer, ceremony for myself. I began by making a sacred bag to hold items that were special to me and from there I began this cloth. I did not have my sewing machine so I decided I would begin this “meditation cloth” and make it by hand. It has become a quilt due to the number of experiences I keep throwing into it. Also, due to the lack of fabric resources I have had to collect fabrics piece by piece to make the quilt, which has in turn made it all these different prints! I am thankful it does not appear chaotic. I normally am one to plan things out i.e. consistent solids, prints, etc. This whole experience has helped me to become more spontaneous and “let go”.
