I haven't posted much about my bench quilts because I wanted to wait until I finished the pattern and for me making a pattern is a long process since the first one is usually done on a whim. Sometimes I realize, well maybe someone else could take this basic pattern and make it their own. This is such a pattern / idea. I think an art quilt should be personal to the maker and so the bench here is the spring board.
One of my favorite places is a trail thru the woods in a town park here and I came upon this bench that has the names of a couple with dates of birth and death. I assume they loved to walk these trails as I do.
I thought this as truly beautiful.
My favorite part of this trail is when you come upon this overlook of the lake.
So I put my bench there.
I also love the ocean and Maine so the next one was there on top of a sand dune.
Sit down for awhile to pause and reflect
And who doesn't love a midnight stroll on a hot summers night?
Where would you put your bench?
