I don’t like rick rack, but for this quilt it was fitting….
(isn’t this a great picture? Thank you Kathy!)
When Sandi and Sandy first mentioned on their podcast that they were hosting an online Project Hope Quilt Show on Flickr, my mind started working overtime with ideas. That is a good and a bad thing.
Good, because the creative juices were flowing, bad because my ideas many times are grander than my time or ability. Anyone else have that problem?
My first thought was a sunrise across the water as there is something promising in a new day as you watch the sun rise. More ideas came – hands reaching out – thread and fabric a mess in one corner slowly changing into a beautiful quilt (may still do this one), – words appliqued across the fabric canvas.
One day it clicked and this is what I did, though it evolved even more as I started working.
I can actually quilt words better than I can write them but I used a Frixon Pen to write the words so the spacing would work out.
Having hope opens the possibilities for more pathways to move forward and this is what I wanted to convey.
At Dawn, Hope Brings:
What brings you hope in troubled times?
Enjoy the Journey, Jackie
