Where is the Balance by Diana Ferguson

This quilt was created for a show with the theme, “Town and Country.”  When I heard those words together the thought  that first came to mind was how towns/urban areas encroach and threaten nature.  Man lives from the gifts of this planet yet seems to not consider and/or respect  the natural balance between progress and planet stability.  Hence the quilt, “Where is the Balance?” was created.  I tried to capture nature fighting back as population swells and buildings take over our landscape.  Every day I embrace the beauty of this planet and am thankful for the nurture of it and this piece hopefully reminds others to take a moment and do the same.  – Diana Ferguson
