prayer flag for June


Mahalo
is a word for ThankYou.
it is a one word prayer
of being grateful and aware of all beauty around you.
I took one of my prayer flags that had the word stitched on and collaged it with some of the pieces of fabric that i am thankful to find in a box,
colorful bits waiting to be useful.
after i decided upon an arrangement i free motion tacked them down , overlapping.
after a freemotion quilting session, i painted some parts
that wanted more color.
the addiiton of buttons and ties complete this project.
 
this is held up to the morning sunrise.
 
i have left the edges raw on purpose.
perhaps they shall join up at a later date.
As for now they are free.
Mahalo, Sonja
