We are the World

It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.
Maya Angelou

I’m a little late for the celebration of Martin Luther King day, but I’ve been concerned about our moving away from from diversity and inclusiveness for a long time.  This newest quilt celebrates for me the diversity and inclusiveness that we all need to recognize and work toward.

The background fabric is a large map of the world.  The overlaid design (a celtic Waldalgeheim pattern circa 500o-350 BC variation) is reversed appliqued onto the map.  the four immediated edges to the quilt are small seminole pieced designs, blending world and American ideas.

 

The quilt is 55 X 63 inches.  It is machine pieced, hand appliqued and hand quilted.

My hope is to see the peoples of the world supporting and loving each other, instead of dividing into us vs. them!
