I have done my fair share of creativity this year; from full size quilts, to minitures, from bags and totes to cushions and table toppers. A lot of my ideias have been inspired from many beautiful fabrics, books and patterns. But the most significant quilt I made for myself this year has been the "Self Awareness" quilt. This concept has given me a different vision of what type of person I am, my atitudes, my opinions and what path I want to follow.
Nothing is permanent; everything changes.... and that's also the feeling I get when I look and use this quilt. The words can have simple meanings or a life story to tell.
For this quilt I used only fabrics from my stash. Long time ago I learnt this technique called 'Stack N Slash'. After the top was completed, I added some personal meaning by embroidering some significant words.
