Here is my last piece. It's the fortieth day of Lent, but it's actually quilt number 39. I had that one day where I just came up empty. But I'm ok with that. I think I will make one more. It will be an Easter piece and then the collection will be a full 40.

Move On
9.5 x 6.5" (#40)

This piece was a delight. It came together very smoothly, but with the appropriate amount of creative spontaneity. I was a bit anxious earlier in the day. I had a meeting all morning and spent the rest of the day with the family at the Dallas Museum of Art and going out for dinner. So I didn't get into the studio until after 9 pm. But, grace arrived. Thankfully.

The hand print is somewhat subtle. I used a freezer paper mask and painted over the surface. Here is the thumb and pointer finger. To emphasize it a bit, I outlined it with some long stitches.
And now...

How will I be moving on?

I have been very inspired by your Lenten series and especially your daily journey. Thanks for sharing not only the products but also the process and the reason why.

I hope you will find a venue where you can show the whole Lent series. I'm sure the Quilter's Guild of Dallas would take it as a special exhibit, especially since the Dallas show is during Lent, but I'd like to see it hang for longer than a weekend. Please let us know when you find a venue.
Congratulations on finishing!
