Martha Dominquez-Diaz "Ex-voto"

At  the end of last year, Los puntadas del alma/Stitches of the Soul explored spirituality as a them for our quilts. I thought I would share a few of the quilts with you. I love how each woman in the group has her own distinctive style and while they support one another, they all stay true to themselves.

Martha is one of the most generous and caring people I have ever met. I also happen to love her style. She is learning that less is sometimes more. She loves to embellish.

Here is Martha's artist statement:

My faith is a vital part of my life. I believe in the apparitions of the Virgin and praying the rosary. I've survived many mishaps by meditating. Miracles can happen!

This Ex-voto is thanking the Virgin of Guadalupe for her intercession during my car accident; being able to walk again and take care of my two sons.

My fe es una parte vital de mi vida. Creo en las apariciones de la virgen Maria y en rezar el rosario. He sobrevivido, gracias a la meditacion. Milagros si occurren!

Este Ex-voto es: dando gracias a Nuestra senora de Guadalupe por su intercesion durante mi accidente automovistico; por poder caminar y por el cuidado de mis hijos.

Translation of quilt: "Am I, who am your mother, not here?

On october 19, 1995 I had an accident. Thank you Virgin of Guadalupe for the miracle of being able to walk and take care of my sons.
