This is my second quilt for the commission. I was capturing the feeling of my current stage of life. Everything is crazy. Kids, Spouse, Home, Career, Friends, Hobbies, Hopes, Desires. So many good things all going in a million directions. Often it can just feel out of control and life is starting to fly away. I really love the colors in this quilt and the fun embellishments. The star washers and coiled wire are perfect for that extra little craziness.
Yesterday I took all four quilts down to the interior designer who commissioned the pieces for the Peninsula Cancer Center. She loved them! I can't tell you what a big sign of relief that was. I didn't realize how nervous I was until I got in the car to go home and was overcome with exhaustion. These are the biggest art quilts I have ever done and even though she said she loved the pictures I was scared they would be disappointing in real life. Her happiness was a big confidence boost. Plus, she said she is working with another cancer center in eastern Washington and she is going to recommend me to them. Whoohoo!
