Artist Statement: "Making quilts for other people can often be a daunting challenge. It's a challenge I absolutely love. I don't take a lot of direction in design from customers, but I do encourage a dialogue regarding who, why, or what the quilt is about. Sometimes these conversations lead me to an idea immediately, which was the case for this quilt, and after a year I was not happy with where it was going...In frustration, I spent a day looking at the fabrics, and pondering my pathy. I went to bed, and literally woke up with an entirely new visual idea, and made this quilt in a few days. The journey is the most important part of the creative process for me, and clearly dreams have a deep connection as well, hence the title. Best not to fight the process, but settle in, absorb, and let it flow..."
