A Walking in Love Panel is born!

Today I had the delightful opportunity to witness a new panel being born right in Hayfork, California. The panel was birthed at 2:17 PM and weighs all of 1/2 pound with a pillowcase covering! This creative child comes out the wild experience Nick has had over the last three plus months. An accident put Nick into the home and care of his mother Angenett who is a quilter making a panel for Walking in Love. Who knows how this idea popped into Nick's creativity hopper, but I am so glad it did and that he followed through on the idea and finished! The very first panel to be completed for the Walking in Love Installation (as far as I know)!! 

The panel is created from kerlix and timtex with a small amount of cotton fabric and some white seam binding and steam a seam. Kerlix is the rolled gauzy fabric Nick and Angenett have been using to dress the wounds for all these months. I say this is taking something difficult in life and finding at least one beautiful outcome. The panel is stunningly elegant.
