Fiber Artists for Obama & Cherryl Floyd-Miller's Obama Quilting Story
Fabric CAN capture our times, thoughts, and feelings. The online group - Fiber Artists for Obama - are in the process of making a FIERCE quilt about their favorite candidate. Many members have designed a special block for the collective quilt being made, thanks to Diana Bracy's leadership in organizing the actual quilt. In the photo here is the block by Lisa Shepard Stewart. Do visit Cherryl FLoyd-Miller's blog for more photos of the quilt blocks.
And, if you have five minutes, you MUST read Cherryl's personal blog post about the Obama-themed quilt she's making - the blocks include significant events in the 2008 Democratic Nomination process... Oprah's endorsement, Caroline Kennedy's support, Hillary Clinton as the Queen of Hearts... and, of course, Michelle Obama's loving support. Personally, I'm eager to see Cherryl's final masterpiece! Enjoy!
