Art Quilts Around the World Online Challenge - Believe

My 'believe' challenge for the online blog, Art Quilts Around the World, is finished. 
  I call it "I Believe in Miracles".  Most of my art friends know I don't or can't get 'deep' when explaining my art work.  But I found a quote that I think fits perfect with my piece!  Not my words but I think it is fitting for my 'believe' piece!

"We live on a blue planet that circles around a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the sea, and you don’t believe in miracles? "   Author unknown

 I usually make something because I like the colors, pattern, etc.  Actually, that was the case with this piece of fabric!  I liked the colors!  You can see post on when/how I made this here.

I thought the colors reminded me of the sun so that led me to make some circles and the rest is history!  The more circles I made just made me think of planets!  

I wanted to depict some of the light from the sun and stars so I just added a triple stitch using the same Sulky 40wt rayon thread.  It appears that it's thicker thread but it's not.  

And detail pics...


  1. Robbie…..this is a really, really great piece. The addition of the black lines was the perfect touch!

  2. How perfect. Love the quote and the art piece.
    Stay warm

  3. The quote really fits your piece. The way the colors work, and the heavy stitching make it so appealing.

  4. The quote and your piece are spectacular!

  5. Such amazing quilting and I love the poem you chose to explain it...perfect!
