I am a member of Voyage Art Textile, an online group of art quilters which started a couple of months ago. The first year are quilts (size 10"x20") will have the theme: Where am I, Where am I at and Where am I going. This quilt is the first one I made for this group. Inspiration for it came from an - enlarged - fingerprint. As I am a dyer, all the fabrics I used are hand dyed. The background is snowdyed. Most of the time I am working on more then one project, next to having a job, so dividing my time is a must. That is the reason that I fragmented the fingerprint in a couple of squares. After the machine quilting was finished, I added paint to the blue squares. Now I have the problem to find a title for this piece.

I often get song lyrics in my head while working, I usually have music on, that's often inspiration for a title.

The background fabric is simply gorgeous and love the little squares. It reminds of me of being free and floating hither and dither...wherever the wind will take me :)
