This huge goddess quilt is one of Leah's favorites for the transformation it brought to her life. While working on it, Leah was struck with the idea to start the Free Motion Quilting Project and challenge herself to share new quilting designs every day. In this way, Release Your Light allowed Leah to release her light to the world, build a business, and support her family.

While it may not look like it, this quilt began as a large white bedsheet! The goddess figure was hand appliquéd to the surface, then the entire quilt was quilted. Only after it was completely finished, did she begin painting the surface with Shiva Paintstiks and colored pencils to create the dramatic blazing sun effect.
