new work: sisters – bubbling up (or help me find a better title!)

September 6, 2016


This piece was begun and set aside almost 10 years ago but it was time to take it out and put it together. It sprang from a trip where laughter bubbled continually and effortlessly. 

2005vsisters4Back then I had far fewer “natural highlights” in my hair. This past summer the entire family was together again. Again there was much laughter – but after ten years there were far more burdens than there were then. I want to remember that carefree time. These are some of the people in this world that I love and admire the most. Everyone in my family lives very far away from each other. We miss each other a lot.



Life is still good. There is still laughter and love.

(Bubbles is a terrible title.
Help me figure out a better one!)

    What about “Laughing Sisterhood” for a tittle. I like this quilt a lot!

    You already gave it the best title – “Life is still good. There is still laughter and love.”

    What about Sister’s Joy or Joy of Sisters?

    Whenever I see photos of you with your sisters the Irvin Berlin song “Sisters” pops into my head. Perhaps there is a line from that song that “sings” to you? I love this quilt and what it represents. Any title you come up with will fall short of the emotion behind it, so be free and know that the real meaning is within you.

    I want to say what I saw in the original photo was “arms wrapped tightly” or “sisters arms wrapped tightly. And with that, would you consider a panel of your arms in the lower right to balance the even number? I know, I know…it’s your quilt and you didn’t ask for a critique. It is just what I felt when looking at it.
