Four years… In Memory of…

Today our family remembers two very special people. My grandson, sweet little Amalya Nathaniel, was born and passed away on September 10, 2012. God used him in such amazing ways. We were blessed that he lived for one hour and twenty minutes, but he’ll be in our hearts forever. My quilt, Surrender, was made as a memorial to Amalya’s brief but very meaningful life.

Bull’s Eye #3: Exploration

Bull’s Eye #3: Exploration is my second quilt that is part of the Circular Abstractions exhibit at the Muskegon Museum of Art. (It is a continuation of the Bull’s Eye quilt I made for my “Foreign Language series.”) I decided to continue my exploration of pattern and repetition with this quilt.

Review of 2015

For the last few years, I’ve posted brief summaries of the year as it ended. I haven’t been posting much lately, and with the loss of my sweet hubby, I was hesitant to do a review this year, but I thought I would try a mini review. But, forever in my mind, 2015 will always be remembered as the year I said goodbye to my best friend. … Continue reading
