I pulled four pieces of fabric out of the bag of scraps that Belinda sent me. Three of them went together so perfectly, I didn’t even have to think about it, I just sewed them together.
That was the beginning of my new quilt.
One of the nights in New Mexico I dreamed of marigold and pumpkin seeds.
First I saw the marigold seeds, dried and ready to be planted, the wind had blown them into a swirling pattern on the ground. It was the same with the pumpkin seeds, which I saw next.
I immediately thought of the second Chakra which is orange. It represents creativity and sexuality, freedom, passion, intuition and emotions.
I was thinking of that dream when I started working on my quilt this morning, that and the blue sky in New Mexico. So unlike our dreary November day.
My quilt so far, a mix of fiery orange and cool blue.
