Lin Hsin Chen – Progress – Broaden the Horizons

Confucius says, “The wise find pleasure in water; the virtuous find pleasure in hills. The wise are active; the virtuous are tranquil. The wise are joyful; the virtuous are long-lived.” That’s why I explore Nature to broaden my horizons.

Wise men are as stable as mountains. They are considerate and reasonable. Whenever they encounter difficulties, they react quickly and solve the problem. Their personalities are like water, quiet but active, like a non-stop flowing stream.

Most importantly, they are aware of their shortcomings and seeking the right direction for learning.

Materials: commercial cottons, metallic threads
Techniques: 100% hand-stitched, appliqué, pieced, 3-layer quilted

  2. This is by far my favourite for this challenge, I applaud you on your interpretation and colourful eye catching quilt, but most of all the way you have interpreted the words of Confucius. Bravo

  5. Thank you all for the lovely comments. I enjoy the process making this quilt! I also learned a lot from it; maybe it’s because of Confucius’ wisdom. It made me broaden my horizons! Thanks again!
