Tricia's Quote You Are My Sunshine

When I first heard about the theme "Quote," my first thought was the song-

 You are my sunshine,
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are gray.
You'll never know dear
How much I love you.
Please don't take
My sunshine away.

The song is one of my favorites. This past winter we have been living in Nantucket full time. I have started taking a lot of yoga classes. In one of the Saturday classes at a building called "The Greater Light" the yoga teacher read this quote from Mathew 5:14-16

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

With these two quotes I decided I needed to create a light of sunshine.  I created the sun with rays extending out in all shades of yellow.


  1. great use of wedges!! You succeeded in creating sunshine!

  2. What a joyful quilt that so wonderfully illustrates your quoted song! The Texas and Arkansas Mavens are having a super time at Mt Magazine. We miss all you others. We'll report on our activities soon! Enjoyed ice dyeing today!

  3. I love this interpretation Tricia - this quilt evokes the joy and happiness that the sun and "sunshine people" spread.

  4. This is a wonderful illustration of sunshine. All of the different yellow fabrics give a wave and sparkle to the sunlight. We missed you at Mt. Magazine.
