My quilts tend to document my life or at least remind me of things my mother taught me. On My Darkest Day I See Light is such a quilt. Some days, life sucks! But even on those days, there is a reason to experience joy and gratitude. Today is such a day.
This small wallhanging is mostly brown and beige, but accents of green and yellow peak through the quilt to remind me to remain optimistic. It is embellished with buttons and embroidery. A sun in the upper left corner is embroidered by hand, but the remainder of the quilt is done by machine.
The back of the quilt is an African green and brown print. There is a label that documents the quilt and a hanging sleeve for easy display. I signed and dated the quilt on the front.
This quilt is an original design and one-of-a-kind. You can see it up close and personal during the 2013 Atlanta Quilt Festival which opens July 28, 2013 at South Fulton Arts Center, 4645 Butner Road, College Park, GA.
