A Longing Fulfilled, created by Nancy Franklin, was featured in the 6/21/09 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter. The quilt’s title is taken from Proverbs 13:12. “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life”.

As Nancy explains, “Each of the small pieces that make up the tree represents all of the things we long for in life: attention, love, happiness, safety, prosperity, comfort and health, to name just a few. While we often dwell in life’s disappointments, we should be able to reflect on hundreds of moments of satisfaction, and to God’s many blessings that contribute to our own tree of life.” The tree was hand pieced using over 40 commercial and hand-dyed fabrics with a mud-cloth border. The quilt was machine quilted. This is one of a series of tree quilts.

A Longing Fulfilled is currently part of a themed exhibit called Sacred Threads in Reynoldsburg, Ohio. Sacred Threads explores the subject themes of spirituality, joy, inspiration, peace, brotherhood, grief and healing.
