One of a kind.

Art as meditation is the process by which I create quilts. This is one of the more astounding examples of expressing what lies within without my even knowing where this pattern was going.

The dark and light African fabrics in the center medallion, created in the style of Drunkard's Path blocks seem sharp and dangerous. The cutting edges of the center motif are hidden by the dancing figures on the edges. So often, the raw edges of hurts and challenges and the anger of events in our lives are hidden by an outward pretense of happiness.

This iconic quilt has been used in meditation circles and has encouraged participants to express the dark edges that lie underneath.The zia-zag border and the ragged edges emphasize the unsettled nature of unexpressed hurts.
