The Healing Quilt top

So here's the top ( minus borders ) and I like it although the join between the dark and light blue bothers me a bit. I feel as if there should have been a lighter blue square in the dark stripe and a darker blue square in the light stripe. However I'm not changing with Xmas two weeks away!

I could quite see it combined with white squares for a more even flow although that work against Dads healing colours. Now he wants a gold back for it ........ !

The colours are based on this philosophy

Each of the spectrum colours is simply light of varying wavelengths, thus each colour has its own particular energy.

The energy relating to each of these spectrum colours resonates with the energy of each of the seven main chakras of the body.

If you can imagine the chakras/energy centres as a set of cogs/wheels, they are rather like the workings of a clock or an engine; each cog /wheel needs to move smoothly and at a similar speed for the clock/engine to work properly. Thus good health and well being is achieved by a balance of all these energies (or the smooth running of the cogs/wheels).

Colour therapy can help to re-balance these 'wheels' by applying the appropriate colour to the body and therefore re-balance our chakras. Listed below is each of the spectrum colours and the chakra which it relates to. Violet has the shortest wavelength and red the longest wavelength.

Dad wanted the top four colours.

Crown <span class= Violet - Crown

Brow <span class= Indigo - Brow

Blue - Throat

Heat <span class= Green- Heart


  1. Wow, what an amazing quilt (and the philosophy behind it). It's truly unique and I hope it does it's job too. :-)

  2. Wow, I think you got it exactly right! He will love it!


  3. What a great philosophy and a wonderful translation into fabric. Hope it does its job for your Dad.

  4. I've worked with this color therapy before, and I think it helps...especially when one is not feeling quite right. Love the quilt;)
    Happy Quilting!!
