On Wings of Song


This year long journey started as a challenge to myself to create a modern style quilt and has ended in this final piece. Challenging improvisational appliqué, piecing, and many new techniques were practiced.  I have learned plenty, and I'm happy with the final product, but have to acknowledge it is a bit outside the box, especially where traditional quilting is concerned. It is a celebration of my joy in 40 years in church music ministry, playing the organ, singing, and teaching music and band in school.
