“Change” is one of fifty-two quilts in the series "52 Yarns of Lyme - The Lyme Dis-Ease Series" by Susan Jaenen-Griffin that includes traditional quilts, contemporary art quilts, 3d fiber pieces, abstract and mixed media pieces.  The series tells the 'yarns' or stories of my journey with Lyme disease and how engaging in fiber art assisted in my recovery.  The following is the artist statement for the quilt:

Diwali celebrates the good over evil, light over dark and knowledge over ignorance.  The inspiration for this piece came from that philosophy and a gold coin by the Royal Canadian Mint.   I envisioned fireworks sparking a change and the light outshining my brain fog.   Dragonflies are included for their association with change and light.   Rangolis are colorful designs that are drawn on floors to welcome guests during this festival of lights.  I encompassed my healing mantra into the Rangolis.
