Wandering With Abandon is going to Quilt Expo in Madison, WI, then will be on the road for two years as part of an exhibit of quilts based on the traditional Log Cabin block.
Here’s it’s story:
“You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
Sail away, kill off the hours
You belong where you feel free."
- Tom Petty
The visual inspiration for this quilt came from a field of wildflowers in Switzerland where my heart wandered with complete inhibition….total freedom.
It is made from very square blocks and quilted with very straight lines; but the varied block sizes, the irregular grid and random color placement make it visually wonky.
Philosophically, the term “Abandonment” refers to the infinite freedom of humanity to exist without condemnation.
I hope your eye wanders through this quilt with abandon.
Live well. Quilt well.
