Each Stitch is a Prayer
I made this quilt in 2002. It's a traditional and minimalist diamond in a square. I made it while worrying. It's large, 80" x 80" and I let it hold me while I repeatedly pierced it with a needle and then caressed it with my hands during the tension of that time in our history. I look at it now and think about mortality. The finality of sure things like fragile old age and/or sudden death inspire me to love and work right now. Flat out.
