Family Life 1990 Bear's Paw pattern, made entirely from re-purposed family clothing,
the names of the family are used as quilting stitches.
The shapes of the bear's paws made me think a mother's reaction to the chaos within a busy family day.
She throws up her hands.

So often I feel that I am the one who is responsible for all the things that are happening to me and to those around me. I feel that I should be more in control of the situation when in actual fact, there's not much I or anyone can do. The only place where I can do exactly what I want and can take total responsibility is the art I make. Thank goodness for art.
