Heart with Wings 2012

Hearth with Wings

I have always loved the symbol of a heart with wings; it has always been present in my life. My daughter Kate started using an anatomically correct heart in her artwork and I loved it. I started to think how our hearts can be broken in so many ways and yet the human spirit can still rise to great heights in its efforts to overcome adversity. The heart with wings is a symbol of our spirit and our souls. This quilt was fun to work on too because I enjoyed working on the layering of fabric and the transparency in the wings and the different patterns in the heart.
