Goddess Eyes, like an owl’s eyes. Divine eye’s big and wide open. All seeing. There are Goddess eyes all over my new wall hanging.
This is a piece of the front of the quilt I’m using. You can see the original “baskets with flowers” and how I altered them.
I still haven’t sewn anything down, it’s all just pinned. And more to do….

I love the way you have altered the baskets from the old quilt. A new way of thinking about old quilts. I am inspired!
I’m pretty happy with this myself Deb. I believe Inspiration is one of the highest compliment but it also reaches beyond me, which I love just as much. Thanks!
It’s fascinating to learn of your process as you work. So much is intuitive. A lesson there, I think. As always when one is interested in something, I learn a lot about myself at the same time. I know nothing about goddesses and divine power, other than what I read on your (and Jon’s) blog, and I’m greatly enjoying it. Thank you!
I know most of what I do about it from my art history classes and photos that I’ve seen and read about. I beginning to rely so much on my intuition in my work Diane. When I think about it, I don’t really know what else could get me from one image to the next.
I love the fertility goddesses coming out of the basket. Flowers are the fertility goddesses of the plant, carrying the ovary and seeds. An inspired connection.
Lois I can’t believe I didn’t consciously make that connection. Sometimes I can’t see what’s in front of me. I need some Goddess Eyes.
I love the donkey’s head; I should call it an equine because I’m not sure if you want it to be a donkey or a horse. It’s shape is wonderful.
I love the tree too as it also has a wonderful shape. The roots seem to be flowing into and out of the earth in graceful curves. It seems to be moving back and forth with a gentle ebb and flow. I’m fascinated by the images that you have put into this piece. Your creativity produces magic! The eyes are all seeing; I guess you could say, “The eyes have it!”
It’s a donkey Jane, those long ears and all. But my donkeys are getting more and more stylized. Becoming their own thing.
I never was much of a fan of the basket of flowers quilt motif. You’ve improved them immensely. I’m curious to see if you do anything to the edges of the squares or leave them as is.
Yeah Trish, that’s just the kind of thing I love to hear. Thanks!
