Waiting, and waiting some more

“The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?”
― Edgar Allan Poe

Thank goodness that there are quilts and quilting to think about. The vigil would be for less tolerable without color, design, and fabric to think about while listening for changes in respiration.

Life is kind of like a group of sampler blocks, with unique experiences and friendships of all different sizes and shapes.

This quilt was made about 15 years ago and center around French provincial colors.

The appliqué blocks are machine appliquéd with a satin stitch with Sulky threads to give them some sparkle and definition.

The quilt is hand quilted from the backside of the quilt. It measures approximately 50×60 in.
