Fortitude by Nina Moore

The featured quilt of the week in the January 2, 2011 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter  is called Fortitude.  It was created by Nina Moore.
Fortitude features abstract patchwork in purple, yellow and brown. It is machine pieced, machine quilted and embellished with glass beads, metal beads and fabric beads. It measures 30 x 31 inches.

An abstract quilt, like an abstract painting, allows your mind to extract whatever meaning you wish. Sometimes the title gives a clue as to what the creator of the work was thinking. Since Nina named her quilt Fortitude, I see strength in  the browns and happiness in the yellows. From strength comes happiness. 
Fortitude was exhibited at 2010 Atlanta Quilt Festival. See more of Nina’s work at the 2011 Quilt Festival, July 31, 2011 – August 13, 2011 at the South Fulton Arts Center, 4645 Butner Road, College Park, GA.
