Project Description

HAPPINESS – CLOUDED UP
39” x 39”
Finished: March 2013

In memory of my friend Mary Frank, who lost a war to breast cancer in March 2011. I love Mary. She made me realize that working at the beat of my own drum is not such a bad thing. This quilt contains threads from Mary’s embroidery shop and from my longarm machine. There are bits of hand dyed wool-yarn, bits of fabric and Angelina fibers from important friends.
I enjoyed very much making this quilt. Throughout the process it looked like “happiness”, but then, I added the tulle and it clouded up. Yet, that’s how life is; you can be very happy until life takes a turn for the worse and the Happiness becomes Clouded Up.
