Here is the finished quilt. I sent it off last week to have it quilted by a lovely woman (Sue Roberts) in Banchory, Scotland and received it today. With the help of Margaret Owen and the same machine used to finish a quilt my mother and I made a few years ago for my daughter, another set of threads are woven together. I like the idea that there is a small history to the two quilts I've made--same women, same sewn pattern, same machine--a small community sharing the sacred space of creativity. And now with my new daughter exploring its colors and shapes, new threads are passed to the next generation.
Blue it is. A watery, wavy blue. Just like the sea.
