This is one of the first quilts I made. It is
50" X 72" and is hand pieced and hand quilted with metallic thread. When I was growing up we lived on the edge of Arroyo Hondo outside of Santa Fe. My Dad and I used to ride our horses down into the arroyo. There was a place with a small patch of grass that was always green in all seasons. Maybe it was a spring. We would get off the horses, let them graze while we rested in the coolness. It was our special place. Today that place is under a highway, my dad has passed on and after 2 hip replacements, I no longer ride. The vibrancy of that green place lives forever within me. This piece hangs in my home to remind me of the eternal wellspring within.
