Great News - Obama Quilt to be featured in book


I just got the wonderful news that my Obama tribute quilt "Everybody's All American" will in fact be featured in Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi's upcoming book. I'm honored and privileged to be a part of her latest project. Dr. Mazloomi is one of the forerunners experts in African American quilting. Speaking with her is so inspiring. She has high energy combined with a spectacular background in quilting and fiber arts in general. I'm so jazzed. One of the ink painted panels is featured just right. Scroll down to view the entire quilt below. Living Creatively, Sandra

Something to think about....
