"You Are Here" Art Quilt

Machine applique, hand embroidery, cotton. 10" x 8"

"You Are Here" art quilt

Hands are a map of our past, our present, and our future. I used machine appliqué and hand embroidery as I meditated on the lines and stories in my own hand. I included the phrase "You Are Here", a staple of helpful maps everywhere, as a reminder to live in the present.
