These 2 quilted pieces are a wall hanging and complementary table centre piece. They are my first attempt at quilting. The pattern is called North Star Puzzle by a local designer, Joy Brown. 

Creating the wall hanging first in this troubling time, the progression of the 8 colors from dark to light reminds me of God's creation of light and how we will emerge from the darkness of the pandemic into the light of recovery.

Colors progress in the opposite direction, light to dark in the smaller, table centre piece.
