|Hand Dyed Mandala Waiting Its Turn|
A few minutes were spent auditioning threads and then I just jumped into the quilting process. Starting in the very center, I would study the patterns created by the fabric dyeing process and used the designs as my guide. Zero marking!! Almost immediately, I felt the tension of the morning release out through my fingertips. The meditative nature of this particular project consumed my full attention as I watched the stitched design emerge. In less than 2-3 hours I had 75% of my quilt top completely stitched and I felt renewed, empowered and creative. The next morning I woke up excited for a fresh start and completed the last of the quilting.

Angela Walter's is infamous for her "Quilting is my therapy" mantra, and this wholecloth quilted mandala was the perfect therapy for me. While I hope the worst is past, I have a few more hand dyed mandalas prepared for a future rainy day!
