This piece is for one of the art quilt groups I belong to. The theme for this one is Who I Am.

I was inspired by the saying, "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." This is a concept that struck a very deep chord with me and I knew it wanted to be a quilt for Voyage this year. It took a while to come up with the technique for expressing such an ethereal concept but it finally came together. I chose a rather non-descript woman (no facial features, etc) because I didn't want that part to be the focal point. I chose a slightly shiny bronze tulle to express the lightness of a spiritual being. I placed the "spiritual being" just inside the "human being" to give the feeling of the spiritual being living through the human being.



The next insallment will be Where I Am Going. Now if I only knew just where that might be!!! A few concepts floating around in my head just now. Have to wait and see where I end up!
