Surviving January

This quilt was just too much fun to make!
I used 5" squares purchased as a sample pack to highlight the colours in the Painter's Palette solids line.  I LOVE the hand of this fabric.
The black is Colorworks Black, by Northcott Fabrics. It also has a wonderful hand.

Here is the quilt as it grew on my design wall.





Then it went to my long arm quilter, Deanna Gaudaur, quintestudios.com .
Her husband, Mike Gaudaur, quintestudios.com photographed it for me.




Artist Statement:

Surviving January

Resolutions. Plans.
But I’m stuck.
Starting. Starting again. And again. Until I can’t.
Fighting to stay happy; to see the Light; to know that I’m OK.
Always trying.
Using words to convince myself.
‘Life is good. Life is good!’
Until I believe that it is.
And I survive another January.
