Only a crazy quilt could capture this weekend: After a lovely MFA group reunion Thursday, Friday came with a memorable graduation party (a roasted pig plus), micro hot fudge sundae, convertible top down and afibs; Saturday and Sunday with two ballet recitals, babysitting grandson for one, the Quilters Connection show, the English car show at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum on the lawn with talk of tornados on the airwaves (rare for here), dinner with family both nights, trees down all over town, and the beautiful colors that appear after a strong summer storm.
I made a crazy journal quilt to stand for the quilt show and the extremes. The flowers stand for the granddaughters' ballet performances. Raindrops and vibrations are in the different brown patterns, and of course you see the fallen trees along with the beautiful colors and sunshine that followed. I didn't include the new bunny eating lettuce in the garden outside my window or the novelty ballerina fabrics...just symbols. Sometimes or often, less is more. However, I need to bead it. The beads would stand for the glitter of the shows the granddaughters were in and all the drops of rain.
