The Patchwork Quilt

Beautiful things come together one stitch at a time.

I’m back for my series Life: From A to Z, and I’m on the word QUILT for the letter “Q.” A Pop Art painting by the Brazilian artist Lobo inspired me to try the featured image, and the idea behind it was to create a “quilt-look.”

It would look a lot more like a quilt if I would have stayed away from the drop shadows, but I was having too much fun with the dancers to leave the image flat. I’m going to try another version at some point down the road, but for now I’m happy with the end result.

I recycled the tango dancers that I used for my post It Takes Two, and I love the fact that the color changes and the background shift alter the whole mood. It’s like life—One moment in time can be perceived and remembered in so many different ways. It all depends on how we look at it.

Anyway, I love the word quilt. Not because I love quilts on my bed (which I do), but because life is like a quilt. Just like the quote above says, beautiful things come together one stitch at a time… and the most beautiful thing that this applies to is our life. What grieves us today may be the answer to a prayer next year. What feels like the end tonight is only the beginning tomorrow. The pieces don’t fit yet, but they will one day… when the quilt is finished.

That’s how I see it anyway.

Anyway, that’s about all for now — Thank you for stopping by.

I hope you enjoyed The Patchwork Quilt, and I’ll see you again soon for the letter “R.”

Peace & Love!!
