The Quilt Show Puzzle: "Sweet, Sweet Bliss" by Valerie C. White
Do a puzzle of Valerie C. White's quilt, Sweet, Sweet Bliss.
Sweet, Sweet Bliss depicts "Valerie", Valerie's alter-ego as she sits upon a park bench in Denver doing her non-quilting hobby, knitting. The real Valerie loves to knit, appreciating the tactile nature of pulling the yarn and just hearing the needles clicking. During COVID, Valerie met a group of knitters while she herself was knitting on the park bench and became friends with them, sitting and knitting all afternoon until it would get too hot. The quilt represents a slice of real life for Valerie, the only thing not so true, and why it depicts her alter-ego, is Valerie gave herself flying red hair.
