This wall art quilt holds a special place for me. It is a photo I took from Prague at the John Lennon Imagine Wall in the 90’s. I passed it on to a special young man named Connor who is working hard at his sobriety. I told him to Imagine his life getting better and better.
Hand dyed greens/turquoise. Stamped and hand embroidery adds some interest.
My hand stitched block from a woman in Mali, halfway around the world arrived today. Now it’s up to me to make “grinding maize” into an art quilt to sell for The Advocacy Project. 1/2 the money goes to the Malian woman who is a Gender Based Violence survivor and 1/2 goes to teaching others to sew and sell their wares in a micro economy.
