International Women’s Day: The Peacekeepers

This quilt was inspired by the border fabrics that I found on the flat fold table at the Good Store in Blue Ball, PA. The outside border is covered with women from around the world holding or teaching young children, and the inside border displays peace in a number of different languages. The weave pattern represents how all their lives and methods of teaching their young are intertwined.

The colors used in the weave were selected from the colors in the outside border and piece was quilted in a harlequin pattern with clear nylon thread. Matching 16 inch pillow were also created to be displayed with the piece.

Quilt was finished in May of 2006.
