Artist's Statement

My inspiration quilt was Star-Sunburst found on the Quilt Index. This quilt actually made me dizzy looking at it. I wanted to create a project that had this two-toned tunnel-type affect. The title of my project is "Perils of the Birth Canal". I've always wondered if new souls looked upon the universe with a little trepidation. Maybe that is why we need a push or two before we begin our earthly excursion.
