Going In

By Lisa Binkley

Creating “Going In” was a great meditation and celebration. All my life I've identified with turtles—being quiet, slow, deliberate, and loving and feeling at home in places where land and water meet. The turtle in this quilt is literally “going in” to the water; by being alert, quiet, and patient, the turtle is also going within itself, realizing its oneness with the land, water, plants, and rocks around it. Machine pieced and embroidered; hand beaded and embroidered. 15" x 15" x 1.5"d
