Fiber Sisters for Hope

I was asked to join the Fibers Artists for Hope which made me happy. I know this group well. They originally began by making Obama quilts. I interviewed many of them for Quilters' S.O.S. - Save Our Stories, an oral history project of the Alliance for American Quilts. They had begun working on a new exhibition called "The Unspoken Truth About Color: A Dialogue in Art Quilts About Racism" which deals with racism. I had less than 10 days to make my quilt. Sometimes it takes a quick deadline to get me from over thinking and just creating. This piece makes me happy. You can visit the group's blog to learn more details about the exhibition--Unspoken Truth and Hope blog. Now it's back to writing for me!

  1. Thank you for joining Fiber Sisters of Hope and making your wonderful quilt is such a short amount of time. We are fortunate to have you as a member. I do remember my interview with you when I made my Obama quilts for Quilters Save Our Stories, Quilter's S.O.S. It was a very pleasant experience and now a part of history. Thank you. I do believe in the Chinese proverb of the invisible red thread connecting our destinies. It will never break.
