Open Your Mind, Open Your Heart
This quilt was mainly a design exercise at the time I made it. I began sewing it while I was pregnant with my first child and completed it after she was born. Bubbles floating out of a disappearing grid do bring concepts like "birth" and "freedom" to mind, and motherhood certainly has brought much to my life in the way of rebirth, newfound freedoms and strengths. So I guess there really is more to this quilt than a mere design exercise.
