"Stream of Consciousness" - This is an art quilt , hand drawn and designed by me, it is all raw edge applique finished with a blanket stitch. It is based on a memory of mine from my childhood. This quilt means the world to me, as it is my very first completed art quilt, it was a semi finalist in the AQS Paducah Show in 2008. It was also accepted into the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza in 2007.
One very unique thing about this quilt is the "face" that appears in the upper left mid center of the quilt, I did not plan the design that way, it just happened to be a combination of the fabric pattern and the quilting , and I did not notice it until the quilt was completed! But it appears that the "night sky" is a female looking down on the emerging butterfly...pretty cool!
