I try to keep gratitude at the fore front of my life. I even keep a gratitude journal just to make sure I never forget to be grateful for all things big and small. It is life changing.
I often incorporate the word gratitude in my quilts, but now I have created a whole series focused on gratitude. The series is "Grateful For Another Happy Day", and there are 7 quilts in this series, one for each day of the week. Each of the quilts starts with a panel of a beautiful, joyful African woman by Julia Cairns.
"Grateful For Another Happy Day #5" measures 31x34 inches. The dominant colors are brown and orange in a mixture of batiks and African fabrics. It is pieced and quilted on my machine and embellished with buttons.
The fabric on the back is a red green and gold heart print. There is a hanging sleeve for easy display and a label that documents the quilt.
I signed and dated the quilt on the front. "Grateful For Another Happy Day #5" is one-of-a-kind.
