This quilt started out as a Club EQ challenge about three years. The background is the same shattered glass technique I used in the Dove of Peace and both of these quilts hang in our sanctuary. Sometimes as you work with a quilt, it really tells you want to do. I liked the silhouette idea in the EQ file, but as I began putting the figure into cotton and silk, they were too flat. They need a lot more detail and color. It was interesting as I began playing with value and hue, I kept saying, where is the light source… and the answer is so true. The Baby is the source of our light!
