Being – Between The Blast And Now

between the blast and now - detail

Ever work on something so intensely and for such an extended amount of time that it BECAME YOU or – maybe – YOU became IT? Thats kinda how I feel about this quilt. I know that sounds dramatic, but, Whew! I have been working on or dreaming about this thing for months.

Today we hung it in the gallery and I got my first really good look at what the WHOLE thing is from far enough away to really see it. I felt a little like an astronaut in orbit. This thing is big enough it probably HAS an orbit.

Anyway, here are some photos of my latest creation, “Between the Blast and Now”, scroll down to the end for one of me with a “What hath I wrought?” look on my face. I’m feeling a little proud and a little disoriented, but mostly happy to have  managed to wrestle this baby up on the wall (thanks Doug and Dave!). Please don’t fall off the wall, tonight, little quilt. Be good to your mamma. The people will come to see you tomorrow, and then you and I are gonna curl up with a good book.
