NIE AUCTION ITEM #177 - Quilt








From the artist: it took a long time, i wanted it to be perfect. by perfect i mean, just how i imagined it, and how i imagined it is very imperfect. it's meant to be a symbolic quilt. the lines aren't straight, the quilting is random, the plus signs are wonky and that's because life doesn't always go the way we planned it to. but together, with our loves and friends and family, we can make it through anything (the plus signs). the colors are meant to symbolize that we can get through all those trials that will come our way with love and beauty.
the plus signs. i cut two at a time and shuffled the pieces so as to make them all different, wonky, and all sizes, while wasting NO fabric and still only having to sew straight rows.
