The Illuminated Phrase

This is my submission for Jackie's Illuminated Phrase project at Smoothpebble. Mine isn't a word or even a phrase...but a statement.

"Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.”
John F. Kennedy










Thanks for the challenge, Jackie. This one really pushed me.

Ooooh I love it. Makes one think, you know? Great job (although where did you find the fabric for the peace symbol???)

Wonderful art quilt. This is what I love about quilting--it can make a statement other than "ooh, pretty!" Or, it can make a statement in addition to "ooh pretty!" :)

So perfect! Could there be anything more important, more now, more on my brain than this. Quilts tell a story and this is a perfect one for the year 2008.

One word, well, maybe more than one..so powerful. The words: So powerful, so important; your creation exquisitely fits the words. You are such an artist, Jacquie.

This knocks me out. Bravo! The quilt is stunning and powerful, and the quote should be our mantra.

I've been catching up on your blog now that I'm home again. Don't want to send too many comments, but it's been great to read. Your steely log quilt is great. I loved the back but puzzled over it until I scrolled down to your peace post. Wonderful.
