Sometimes procrastinating cleaning the basement and sandwiching a quilt can come in handy. There has been an avalanche of new additions to the Quote Quilt .
This quote covers up a duplicate quote. While I don't mind duplicate quotes, this quote has been important to me ever since I first came across it as a teenager. I just let the fabric be this organic shape (trimmed to size) instead of cutting it into a particular shape.
When I tried to think of things that happened during the 2002 to 2020 time frame, I remembered that we had several graduations. I found a spot that had space for these motifs and the fact that the quote is about study made it appropriate place to put it. Hopefully it doesn't make the graduates feel I am undermining all their years of study!
While I was at it, I included one to represent births. There were some cousins who were born in this time frame. This baby can also represent new beginnings and new years.
This is a pretty picture I found and a fun quote I wanted to add.
This is a star to symbolize Jupiter and Mars conjunction for the first time since 1623. It may look like a sun to you, but if you squint hard enough, you will be able to see the star.
This quick one is for the solving the Zodiac cipher. This quote may seem more upsetting than comforting, but for me, it meant that you might as well do what you want since there will always be a way to complain. The proverb was commiserating and showing that someone understands what you are going through.
