I cut a piece out, the silk is split, holes are left exposing the flour sacs underneath. I sew on a bird, a verse, some lace, add a flower and beads, and more bright embroidery. Like a new life for a worn traveler. Where has this quilt traveled?
Crazy quilts are healing quilts. The beauty is in the brokenness stitched together. Made with love, worn with time, healed with love. Full circle. It is like healing for a broken heart or a damaged soul. And then… treasured, again.
The above picture is a 5 x 7 piece in progress. The words say "Rejoice in the spring" as Spring is again representative of new life.
