MCML Workshop: Quilted Cushion with Naila Janzen

July 13, 2022 at6:00 pm - July 20, 2022 at8:30 pm

$120 – $130

Artist Inspiration:

In this collection I have used two triangle shapes that represent Navigation. The smaller triangle represents the sail of a sailboat. Used to guide a boat on its course to the desired destination. The larger triangle paired in sets of two to represent the historical quilt block, Flying Geese. This block design was used during the Underground Railroad to signal a safe haven for those who escaped slavery on their way to the North and to freedom.

What we believe will determines our results. So, if you can cultivate your thoughts you can create beliefs that lead to your desired outcome.
