For many people, family is a very passionate subject and is often either an incredible system of support or a stressful burden. I have been blessed with an incredible family, but even the best connections have weak moments. I created this piece during a very uncomfortable time when my family seemed to be falling apart. The pattern on the quilt is an Irish knot, symbolic of the four members of my immediate family when our connections were fragile and no longer matching up.
