Tacoma Winter 18" x 24" 2012



When I made this quilt a few months ago, I think I knew what was coming.  On July 11 my son, at the tender age of thirty, lost his battle with cancer.  I have nothing philosophical to say about this heartbreaking loss.  It is 95 warm degrees outside, but in my heart it's winter.

Night Flight 18.5" x 19" 2012

A title for this little piece found me at last.  I made it in response to a challenge to create a composition with thirteen half square triangles.  I used a Ricky Tims piecing technique to make dimensional flying geese, and I like the interplay of the warm triangles on the gradated gray grid.  I hope it likes its title.
