Colors of My Life

Creative Quilting techniques used: Creative free design machine quilting on printed fabric (p. 98) Embellished accents with hot glue on crystals (p. 244 ) Over- painted with white Lumiere ® paint (p. 244)

I wanted to pick a fabric with colors I have felt. Trying to work with them, embellish, and molding them into how they have been incorporated in my life.
Each color is how I have felt this year. Hot pink and the spiked design is to show the hard times and hurtful times in my life. Losing a son, the anger and hurt of it all.
Purple/blue are the waves of the shock in my heart, waves of not understanding, turning all around inside. Many months of waves and many emotions turn with it. Finally it ends with the Green. The quilted leaves, new growth, somewhat of clarity, and how life renews and continues. The crystals represent the light of how my son touched people lives. He will forever be a light burning in the hearts of everyone that knew him.
