And Above Everything Mother Sun Shines





After evaluation of thoughts (and some other work) for the current theme ‘Every Single Day’ I settled for my inspiration from an old Danish song by a Danish comedian ‘And Above Everything Mother Sun Shines’. Though it is funny a line in the song it has meant much to me since my childhood. When times are tough or the sky is grey I often think of this particular line in the song and it seems to me to be the most true ‘every single day’ experience I know.

My intent for this piece was to show my interpretation of sunlight in contrast to the dark.


This is my third attempt and I decided to try a technique I have tried only once before. I made a wholecloth quilt with heavy batting.

After quilting I painted with acrylics.

Other designs can be seen on my blog.

  6. The colours in this quilt are stunning, I like the way they flow into one another. And the texture from the quilting creates a really strong image. Lovely quilt

  7. I really like the surface design treatment and colors. I see a benevolent eye looking down on us quilted in the middle of the design; is that intentional or just me?

  8. Not intentional, but I saw it too.
