If you are new to my blog, Tree of No Hurry began in an appliqué class with the wonderful teacher Janet Shorten at the Stitchin’ Post quilt shop in Sisters, Oregon in May 2016. Here are the related posts about the beginning of the piece, it’s evolution, wrangling embroidery floss, etc.:

Tree of No Hurry is part of my “Nature Stories” series of quilts. You can view my current four series of art quilts on my Art Quilt Stories page.

Here is the Artist Statement/story behind it:

TREE OF NO HURRY (2017)

25.5” W x 27” L, cotton fabric, embroidery floss

Designed, pieced and quilted by Tierney Davis Hogan

THE STORY OF THIS PIECE:

How often do we hurry about in our lives attempting “to do” everything we feel we must accomplish?

This quote by ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu reminds us that a force as powerful as Nature (with a “to-do list” greater than we could imagine) does not hurry and still gets the important stuff accomplished.


Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. – Lao Tzu

  1. This is such a great quilt… I think it was one of the pieces you were working on when I first started reading your blog! I remember you getting to grips with the embroidery techniques, and also with the inevitable tangling of the thread skeins! (Happens to us all! 😂) I love the quote, and your artist’s statement is concise and well-written, too. Beautiful work!
