"Quilting makes my heart blossom"
I really love the different elements of this quilt. The house-like shape with the tile-pieced roof, the colorful flowers embroidered with thick threads, the little bird singing at the top and the skirt made from an over-dyed bed sheet.
I gave it this title because I feel the happiest when I am at home quilting. Like the garden, my family blossoms when I nourish them with love.
I chose this method of construction to demonstrate that cloth and recyclable materials can be used to create and interpret your thoughts. I wanted to include paper clips from magazines, calendars and mail received by members of my household. This is an enjoyable technique that I feel is just the beginning of a new and innovative way to do art.
