The poem perfectly encapsulates the experience of taking stitch after stitch on a quilt for a baby whose whole life is ahead and unknown. We try to catch time...your beautiful quilt is like a net thrown over the stars...but it is always elusive and heartbreaking.
such a poignant tender work Judy and Dana has the most wonderful way with words
Lovely poem and beautiful quilt! The baby is a lucky one. Surely she'll treasure this.
Dana, thank you for your comment "your beautiful quilt is like a net thrown over the stars" inspiring for a new quilt that includes pieced stars.Also about trying to catch time - impossible, but hand stitching does come close.I am reading the novel All My Puny Sorrows - and it is opening my heart and mind just the right amount.xoYes, I hope that Aili will love and use this quilt for the rest of her life.x
Lovely. Perhaps Aili will be creating similar pieces pretty darned soon!
Making a baby quilt is one of the most life affirming and hopeful things that one can do. It shows belief in a future. x
the stunning yet soft precision and simplicity of this one is just the best example to me of the care that is so much a main component in your work. and such a nice element to the concept of blanket.
Stitching and believing in the future...
I see you are on holiday. Nice. Enjoy the ocean.
I am so lazy on holidays. You get so much done, each and everyday. The quilt is just beautiful.
Thank you for taking the time to connect. Much appreciated.xx
