My little quilt titled “Sharing the Bounty” came back home today after traveling for the last year with the 2008 Breaking Traditions charitable exhibit. Lynn took very good care of the art quilts while they traveled. My tribute was to the thousands of people who generously give of their time, talents, money and excess garden crops to help feed the hungry people in our country. Let there be no mistake, there are millions of hungry families and individuals right in our own backyard.
The quilt is 12 x 12 inches and is done in rusted fabrics. Mother earth was accented with brown pigma pen. Each of the leaves is sheer silk and has the name of a food stuff written across it. It has tan colored tulle covering it to hold it down for the free motion machine stitching.
