Fantasea Walls

My husband has asked me numerous times these last few months of heartbreak with my mother's "condition" to stop hitting my head against the wall and find peace. I have never been so sad nor creatively blocked in my life.
So I imagined a beautiful and colorful fantasy wall and getting past it to some of the things that have always made me happy... The stone/rock wall reminds me of our visits to the beaches of California where we now have 2 sons in college. And the overall optimism I see in the quilt reminds me of our third son's ability to always make me feel great!

Materials used: Commercial and Batik fabrics, cotton and rayon threads, cotton batting, embellishments and Alchemy textile paint.

Machine embroidered and machine quilted.

I was pleased with a new facing method but not with the overall composition.
