Hand dyed indigo shibori on cotton with indigo hand dyed perle cotton thread.
Pieced/whole cloth quilt with machine and hand quilted.
This quilt has evolved over the weeks. I finally decided yesterday that it will be my donation for the auction. The auction raises money and supports the art program at my university. To say that I am grateful for the program would be an understatement. I have been given so much more than education there. I've found mentorship, friendship and creative refueling. I'm learning to make a new life for myself at SIUE.
I'll stitch the hanging sleeve on the back and sign it then deliver it. I wonder where it will end up?
Linking up once again with Off the Wall Friday
Inspiration for the title came last week after another Kurt Elling concert. This is one of my favorite songs that Kurt has done. I played it on the way to my first class at SIUE. Stepping into the light, indeed.
