Found this photo on Lee Webb's blog, http://www.leesoutdoor.blogspot.com and fell in love with the composition. What better way to announce the winner of my "Blue Skies" Inkblot giveaway game?
As I created the piece, 16 x 18 inches it was amazing to me how a story was sewn into the design without any plan. Here is my interpretation of the piece:
The upper left wonky square represents the field staff, directors and myself "thinking outside of the box" on how to keep participants safe as it snowed for 5 solid days and came waist high to most adults.
The upper right wonky triangle is representative of the tarps that become tents for the participants for shelter.
Lower left star is represents the field staff "who are rock stars" in my mind with their ability to cheerfully carry out their job for 8 days in a row in the winter elements!
And finally, the lower right wonky house is mine and as I began the quilt the first glimpse of sun peeked through my window after 5 days of hiding.
I was absolutely mesmerized by all of your entries including the children's. Very fun for me to read how differently one design can be interpreted by numerous people. My hope is that a part of this game helps us all reflect on the artisitic side of quilting and what the creation can evoke for each individual.
The prizes that are being gifted will be to all of the children and RaeAnna who was chosen from the hat as the adult winner. Wahoo!!! and Congrats!!
