Turned-edge hand appliqué, hand piecing, open work, free-motion machine thread lace, domestic machine quilting.
In the same way that stars can only be seen at night, there is beauty that is only experienced in hardship. This quilt was inspired by those profound moments of love amid our suffering, laughter in our sorrow, hope in our despair. The beauty in the broken.
