Martha is known as our "Embellishing Queen." She loves embellishing. There isn't a bead or charm that she does not love. She also loves handwork. She is also one of the most generous people in the group-- always willing to share her personal fabric and charms. One of my favorite parts of this quilt is the woman's green eye shadow. The flowers were made when we played with rubberstamps. Martha uses what she learns which makes her teacher so happy!
Remember that these quilts are the second quilts that these women created. The subject matter (the killing of women in Cuidad Juarez in northern Mexico) is not an easy subject matter and yet, they rose to the challenge. I could not be prouder of them.
