Hope of Feathers

This is a quilt I designed for my boss at work for Christmas, she has been thru so much in the last months, her brother was seriously injured in an automobile accident and sustained severe injuries, brain damage, but she never wavers in her hope for his recovery. I had seen an art quilt using feathers in a pocket in Quilting Arts, and then just happened on this saying from Emily Dickinsen and my mind went to work. I would never had come across the saying if I had not read May Britt's blog about the advent story and the subsequent webpages that were linked. Funny how we are all connected and inspired when you least expect it.
