Lighten Up!side Down
I was given the challenge to make a quilt about joy. In this self-portrait, I am wearing some silly clothes I wore to go trick-or-treating with my kids. I'm not really this good at cartwheels, though! I inherited many of the fabrics from the stash of folksinger Gerry Armstrong when she died a couple of years ago. She taught me alot about many things in life, joy included, so this quilt is also a tribute to her.
