Artist’s Statement: "Shine Bright" was created by, first, hand painting colours on white fabric, then using bias tape appliqué for the bubbles. A chunk was cut out to add the "Ohio star" block. Next, I quilted, and quilted—and quilted. I stepped out of my box with the quilting and used contrasting thread, something unusual for me.
