Experiencing Life

Size: 24" X 24"
Pattern: Original
Quilting: Machine and hand (big stitch)
Inspired by a photo of Lucy Johnson

Experiencing Life was created in response to a High Fiber Diet challenge called, “It’s Not Easy Being Green.” My granddaughter, Lucy Johnson, was my muse for this portrait of a young girl facing the challenges of growing up. The wonders of life, and the darker side. This portrait continues my fascination with using unusual fabrics to create hair.
