This is a commissioned quilt that I made for Helen Weinman of her parents, Sam and Sylvia Weinman, at the beach. I truly enjoyed the challenge of doing all the "flesh" in this quilt. (Pat Campbell's "Fossil Fern" fabric makes great nipples, by the way.)

FOR SALE - $2,550.00

This quilt was created for an invitational show held in Germany. I used a photo I had taken of a squirrel in my cherry tree for inspiration. I think the squirrel should be the quilter's mascot because we all "squirrel away" so much fabric."

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage agaisnt the dying of the light.
Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

- Dylan Thomas

This is an emotional and deeply personal quilt based on a photo my brother, Steven Warr, took of my father, Noel Warr.
