The Quilt Show Puzzle: "On the Day You Were Born: The Sun Flared" by Susie Monday
Do a puzzle of Susie Monday's quilt, On the Day You Were Born: The Sun Flared.
Susie says of On the Day You Were Born: The Sun Flared, "Working abstractly, the title often come to me during the process of making. This piece, painted on my iPad with a simple child's app that uses simple shapes as "brushes," begged for size. Making an all-over pattern intensity of color and energy was the aim, but a bit later, while I was adding hand stitching and appliqué elements, a friend read aloud the children's book On the Day You Were Born by Debra Fraser. The gift of hearing it: a title and a series that interprets the books and its beautiful message of energy, unity, community and welcome."
