12 months

by Kristin

12 months...the length of a deployment. Twelve horizontal strips of fabric from my husband's uniforms (plus a few other fabrics) represent the twelve months. The vertical quilting indicates the actual days of the months. Although it is not specifically a narrative, the fabrics and colors move from having the best intentions to the darker, tired feeling one inevitably has towards the end of such a long separation. The 365th day, however is marked with the open heart with which we welcome daddy back.
