I am entry #405
I had originally planned to use white for the background, but just didn't like it. I am not sure why I decided to try grey, but I am very happy with the choice :) To me, the grey represents life and it's trials. We have so many things that could get us down and that are SO hard! The flowers and their cheery colors represent the happiness and joy that we have to choose to focus on in our lives. We could be down and unhappy every day, but we can choose to see the joy and be the bright shiny colors in our lives and in the lives of others.
I have to say finishing this quilt is a HUGE relief!
Late addition... I forgot to get a shot... or three... of the back, so I ran out Sunday morning and shot some :)
