Quilting with a Message

I submitted a quilt to "threads of resistance".  I'm proud to have made one of the 500 different quilts were submitted for the traveling show.

My quilt is in the woman's rights category:

It uses vintage Sunbonnet Sue blocks.  Here is my statement about the quilt:

Don’t look the other way.

Back in the day, if a quilter didn’t agree, she would turn one of the Sunbonnet Sue figures on her quilt to face the other way. We can’t turn our back on our problems now. We have to take off our bonnets, put on our “pussy hats” and let our feelings be known.
