“Our days are a kaleidoscope. Every instant a change takes place in the contents. New harmonies, new contrasts, new combinations of every sort. Nothing ever happens twice alike. The most familiar people stand each moment in some new relation to each other, to their work, to surrounding objects. The most tranquil house, with the most serene inhabitants, living upon the utmost regularity of system, is yet exemplifying infinite diversities.” ~ Henry Ward Beecher
I lost a good friend recently and also finished a new quilt. My friend reminds me of how tentative and precious life is and how we all must be aware of those around us and not let time pass without acknowledging and affirming them.
The quilt reminds me of the kaleidoscopes that surround us daily.
The quilt is approximately 52 inches (almost square). The central portion is hand appliqued and highlighted with embroidered outlining in contrasting colors. It is also hand quilted.
