Sketchbook, Quilt

The Sketchbook Challenge(see button at right) has Pathways as the word for this month. I love the word and idea but was having trouble coming up with an idea. Last night we were watching "Through the Wormhole" on the Science channel on TV and it hit. I'm fascinated by the concept of TIME, so I sat there and did a mapping of all the things time can be.

Years ago I did this quilt called Pathways and here is a photo of it in a gallery. Until now I didn't realize that they didn't hang it flat. It's from a piece of fabric I airbrushed. It is part of a series on the 5 stages of grief that I did during a challenging time in life. It is "Echoes of Rage" but the name I use for shows, so it is more socially acceptable is Pathways. It is the way I felt at the time. The strips are fused before having yarn zigzagged to the edges.

I feel emotion from your quilt regardless of the name, and that's as it should be. It's very special!
