Lunar Lunacy

Lunar Lunacy

Lunar Lunacy to date, has been the most instrumental quilt to the healing of my battle with endometriosis that resulted in a total hysterectomy at the age of 38. The beginning of this quilt started quite humbly, as a favor to my friend Bonnie McCaffery as part of her Jewel Pierce Patterson Award Exhibit in Houston, TX. in Creativity Design. At the same synchronistic moments, my life was turned upside down with an injection drug called Lupron, to put my body into a chemical menopause. Little did I understand the effects it would take my body and mind to. I suffered deep depressions, and an unexplainable bout of memory loss and confusion, quite the opposite of my personality! Hence, as you look at the geometrics in the quilt design, that is how I had felt.....a bit of Lunacy. Soon after, before the the quilt top was finished, I had my hysterectomy. I finally felt at peace with myself. The pain of the endometriosis was gone and my body would now begin to heal, and that is where the slice of celestial came into play on this quilt..The Lunar part. My bit of calmness in a world of chaos. I quilted the top during the 10 week recovery and it was juried into Sacred Threads , an exhibit on healing quilts. Also Lunar Lunacy was picked to represent a week in February in the Art Quilt Calendar.

Lunar Lunacy now resides for a while on the ceiling of 7th Street Coffee in Milford, PA...a nice peaceful gathering spot with good music, comfortable velvet couches and the best cappuchino's and chai tea!
