|Katie Pidgeon, Spin the Wheel of Chance and "Make Your Mark"|
Spin the wheel of chance and “Make Your Mark”
This has probably been my most challenging quilt theme. Throughout the past few weeks, I have been thinking if I have “made my mark” and I’m not sure. I don’t think we are the makers of our fate; rather, it’s the people around us that ultimately defines who we become. So, my quilt is a wheel of chance you can see at fairs. You never know where it will land, but sometimes you need to spin again.
