Feeling A Quilt


The beginnings of my new quilt.

I woke up this morning with an idea for a new quilt.  Jon asked me if it was something I dreamed. But it wasn’t from a dream, it was how I was feeling.

I came into my studio knowing what colors I wanted to work with.  Don’t think, I kept reminding myself, feel what the quilt looks like.


Now I’m back from my Belly Dancing class and in my studio again.

It’s 8:30 and getting dark already.  I like being in my studio this time of year and this time of night.  When it’s dark outside, but still warm.

The dark hugs my studio, filling the windows with night, turning them into reflections so I see inside my studio instead of outside it.

It’s a solitary, cozy feeling.

Just me and my work, figuring out what comes next.

    Such happy bright colors, the rustle of silk saris on warm summer evening come to mind.
