Hope

 
                                                     Every Single Day
                                               Hope by Margy Johnson

There are many things that happen every single day. Headlines and the news come at us continuously and every now and then you find a positive article, plants grow, birds fly, life continues with it's joys and pains. I wanted to capture hope; its what the flowers represent, all that potential and hope encased in a small seed.
 It was interesting scouring the news papers to find positive headlines and pictures to build up the first layer of the quilt and create a record for that period of time. Matching up fabrics and then threads, all had to balance and co-ordinate to complete the picture

  8. hi Margy,
    ...Love this piece.
    Gorgeous details while keeping a crisp clean graphic.
    Did you screen print the background?
    Those whispers of text are intriguing.
    This one needs to be looked at again and again.

  9. This is a wonderfully executed piece, Margy. I wish I could hold it up close so I could see the "whispers of text" (as Heidi elegantly puts it).
