Happy New Year 2021

Welcome 2021 ! We wish all of you the very best of health, happiness, peace, and prosperity in the New Year. May you truly be gifted with the blessings of abundance.

24 Abundance Quilts by Therese May, California

Therese made 24 of these sparkling 12 inch square mini-quilts to display at the 2019 show of the Santa Clara Valley Quilt Association. She explains that each one has "an inspiring message, all embellished with buttons, beads, paint, and polymer clay meant to all hang on one big wall for this show." 

Each of the quilt borders is lavishly decorated with different colors and different items. This one features tiny shells, interspersed among colorful orange yo-yo's with green button centers. At the top you can see the intriguing image of a duck's head (which appears to be a green-winged teal).  Light blue buttons are set around the inner border, so the complementary shades of blue and orange provide a great contrast. 

This quilt above features green satin yo-yo's and matching green buttons encircling a center which we imagine to be the stars of a winter night's sky. We liked the square beads of the inner border, which provided geometric interest and contrast with the round embellishments of the outer border.

And here is the collection of Therese's quilts on display, all designed and quilted by her.  This profound visual impact of her work comprises a strikingly attractive image. The uplifting thoughts shown above seem to us to be an example of a positive mind-set which encompasses the hopes and dreams of beginning again. Happy New Year to everyone !
