At Peace


When my partner passed away after a long 

battle with cancer, I experienced the true meaning of 

being at peace. The pain and discomfort were gone.

 There was finally a peace for us both.This quilt is my 

attempt to capture both that peace, and the complexity 

of that peace, using over 30 white, and white on 

white fabrics. But even within the peace, there is the 

dripping red of tears.Mostly they were tears of gratitude.

 It was surely a loss ... but also an incredible blessing to 

have loved and been loved so deeply.
