Be Humble for you are made of Earth, be Noble for you are made of stars.
Sheesh…. you’d think I’d take a PHOTO of one of my quilts before donating it and sending it off! Yes, Labyrinth is going to be a part of the International Quilt Festival silent auction this year! Alas, I did NOT take a good photo of it! At least I will be going to teach at Festival and will swing by and take a better photograph then!
This quilt was for our local Coastal Quilters challenge, 13 x 13 inches, with the theme of Exit. I figured an entrance and exit are the same, so I made this labyrinth and did bobbin work using Razzle Dazzle on the edges of the “stone.” The green is one of my hand-dyes, and the background is quilted with two quotes. The one surrounding the maze is apparently a Syrian proverb, Be Humble for you are made of Earth, be Noble for you are made of stars. I love that!
The second quote is from one of the China Bayles mystery novels:
I’d already done a bit of both [rest and thinking], enough to realize that the only thing wrong with my life was an overabundance of *good* things. All I needed to do was search out the center–the thing I wanted most to be, wanted most to have and do–and use it as a compass.
