In 1990 I made a series of six “Affirmation Quilts”, all 64”x64”, and each beginning with a central mandala square with buttons and embroidery in the middle. At the time I was studying to become a Religious Science Practitioner. I learned to use affirmations in my life and to reprogram my mind and think more positively. My intention for this series was to make beautiful quilts with affirmative titles. This piece, “Release”, is to inspire myself and others to release anything that is no longer needed.
