At Peace ... with ... The Rest of the Story


The Rest of the Story

When I was working on 'At Peace', I reflected on the life experiences that brought me total peace with the Universe; with my God,   But then I decided that those moments just didn't tell the whole story.  

When my partner died after a nasty bout with cancer I saw, and felt, that moment of peace at his passing.  But there soon followed anger at the disease, loss, loneliness and a myriad of not so peaceful emotions and memories.  They were part of our life, and it had been a good life!

I came to the realization that the moments of being at peace didn't tell the whole story.  So I made this quilt. The background is made from one fabric, but cut to show the many other aspects of a life.  It is an exact mirror of 'At Peace', which just seemed right to me.

It tells 'The Rest of the Story' ... about a life that was good.
