The Friday Affirmation

Creative energy surges through me and leads me to new and brilliant ideas.

I don’t usually talk about my artwork or explain what it means to me or the inspiration behind it. The work in the photo today was made in response to a call for entries in a contest sponsored by the Quilt Alliance. It was sold to raise money for the Alliance but still has special meaning for me.

When I first decided to try to take up quilting as a way of honoring my two quilting Grandmas I had no idea how rulebound traditional quilting and quilters can be. No matter how hard I tried it was never good enough. There was always something I did wrong or some rule I violated.

This piece represents my journey from my attempts at traditional quilting to fabric art. It is called “Out of the Block.” The block is a leftover from an attempt at a traditional quilt. That’s me jumping out of the box going forward with my needle held high.

Creative energy surges through me and leads me to new and brilliant ideas, and I am so grateful. Thank you God.
