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.
... I'm just a guy who likes to make quilts ... and tell stories. Every day is an adventure as I try new things. Like the rest of life it seems, what can be done in quilt making is limited only by my imagination. What an incredibly exciting journey!
