"My Life"

"My Life" - I used purple flowers from the Vintage Violets fabric collection for this quilt that depicts my life. Yellow Brick Road represents the road I have travelled thus far. The purple colors represent the passion for life. The flowers represent the notion of taking time to smell flowers. I did loopy free-motion quilting and that represents the ups-and-downs of my life, mostly of my last few years in which I have had to deal with colon cancer and a recurrence in my lung. This is my favorite quilt that I have made because it represents "my life".
