In a way, quilt making is just a mirror. The way you put patchwork quilts together, the way you put shapes together and make relationships in your patchwork, reflects how you make relationships in your life.  – Sherri Lynn Wood on the Crafty Planner Podcast

Inspired by Yoshiko Jinzenji’s work and prompted by Bee Sewcial’s Some Things are Better Left Unsaid, this quilt examines two parallel paths in which stumbling, ordered chaos defines the relationship. Improvisationally pieced from vintage black silk and various feedsacking and quilting cottons, this quilt became a mirror for my primary relationship at the time: two paths along side one another but never converging.
