Anne's Vision Quilt

It gives me great pleasure to show you Anne's completed Vision Quilt! I crammed a bit much into the class, and so finishing was a bit of a challenge for everyone, but look at this! I think it's fabulous!

Anne writes:
This one is quiet, peace, time to think, uninterrupted. Even a Wise Woman needs a break now and again. I'm not sure if she's meditating or napping, but whatever it is at the moment, she's enjoying the quiet.

She has a white tiger for protection, a snowy owl for wisdom, the full moon for inspiration, and a small heart-shaped clock pendant to give her all the time in the world. Her power wand is made from a twig from our pomegranate tree; it has a quartz point. Her earrings are nature goddesses. I like her hair; it's kind of what I hope mine will be, when I get past the calico cat phase.

Materials include: Indonesian batiks, poly-clay face, handspun wools, silk velvet, assorted pewter charms, Extravorganza fabric (images printed on computer printer and appliquéd to the quilt), velvet leaves, vintage cotton mushrooms, various threads and fibres.
P.S. Each student represented herself in her ideal environment, based on the principle of a vision board.
