This quilt is titled Tranquility. I made this in 2004. I saw this quilt in a catalogue but didn't want to buy it. I tried getting the book from the library but they didn't carry it. I had a pair of red pants that I was saving for just this type of thing. I took the catalogue page to the quilt fair, found the book, and looked at it in detail. Following the catalogue picture I drafted out the quilt. I quilted the white fabric to match the picture. I used black fabric and the red fabric from the pants to make the rest. The symbol was a real challenge. I tried library books and Internet searches but nothing worked. I finally decided to free hand the pattern using an ink stamp I had. I chose the symbol for Tranquility: the feeling that comes when all is complete in your world. Using quick fuse I ironed the symbol on. This quilt also hung in the stair well of our first home and received lots of compliments.
I plan to enter this quilt in the Glendale Quilt Fair as their theme this year is Asian Odyssey.
