"Life is Fragile...Handle with Prayer"
I've been inspired by some of the reversible quilts I've seen at the shows and decided I wanted to do one myself...black on one side and white on the other.
This started out to be a "reversible" quilt but it talked loudly to me and said that the black/white side needed to be the front and I would just have a beautiful "white" back. I LOVE the contrasting white silk threads on the heavy linen black fabric.
Here's a great shot showing the front/back of the same area...
Those that know my quilts understand that each of them has a story. During the process of quilting this piece my husband, Kent, became very ill and was hospitalized for a week... this makes you realize just how fragile life is and how quickly it can change.
Thus the name... "Life is Fragile...Handle with Prayer".
I'm leaving for Cape Cod and Annapolis early Monday morning and am planning on getting the binding and finishing touches DONE during my flights. I have another beautiful quilt already started and will be sharing that with you soon!
Hugs, Cindy :)
