One of the marks of a gift is to have the courage of it. Katherine Anne Porter
Heart’s Desire began as fun, putting together tumbler patches in a neutral colorway. After I had layered it with batting and backing and quilted through the layers, I added tucks to the bottom of the hanging. The copper heart was ready to attach, but there wasn’t enough contrast. I cut a hole in the work and wired in the heart. This piece remains in my own collection to remind me to have courage.
About Call / Response: Quote-a-day calendars infuse my day with an unpredicted perspective. This year I will post weekly words of another person and my textile art. I want more time with the words and the image. I want to explore the interplay between words and image. Join the journey, which I have named Call / Response. I just might tell you which came first, words or image!
