What does success mean to you. If you are like me, it means different things at different times. When I was young, academic success meant everything to me. Later I wanted to be successful climbing the legal professional ladder. Now that I am older and retired, living a life of simple abundance with joy and gratitude is my measure of success. My quilt Reimagine Success encourages a re-thinking of what success means.
Reimagine Success, the latest addition to my red and white quilt collection, is a simple quilt made wholly from red and white triangles with a few black accents to add interest, but it makes a dramatic impact.
The variety of reds give the quilt its character. In addition to domestic prints and batiks, there are African fabrics and one silk fabric I purchased in Beijing, China.
I pieced it on my machine, and Maxine Moore quilted it on her long arm. I added the words “Reimagine Success” in the middle of the quilt.
The fabric on the back is red and white and contains inspirational words. There is a hanging sleeve on the back, and a label that documents the quilt.
I signed it on the front.
SAVE THE DATE: Reimagine Success will join my other red and white quilts in my first solo exhibit November 19, 2022 - January 15, 2023 at the Emma Darnell Museum and Conference Center (formerly the Aviation Community Cultural Center), 3900 Aviation Circle NW, Atlanta, GA 30336. 404-612-8600.
