Maria Herrera's Second Quilt

I have the get privilege to teach an amazing group of women at the National Museum of Mexican Art. We have been creating quilts that deal with a tough subject matter--the torture, rape, mutilation and death of young women and children from Juarez, Mexico. This is Maria's second quilt! It truly is typical in that it shows that the women have gone to a better place. I hope you agree with me that this quilt is amazing!


  1. I hope that the women will keep on quilting. I love how Maria works...her style is ethereal while strong at the same time....I suppose something like silk...delicate yet having tremendous strength! I hope all the women continue in their endeavors as they are too good to stop!

  2. Congratulations Maria on this beautiful piece that has such a strong message.
