This is Mom's most recent wall hanging. You may have see the trunk show of her works on my blog. If so you will know that she loves making quilts with an African theme.
Wall hanging for Mennonite Relief Quilt Auction by Anne H
This piece will go to Renske Helmut who is an applique artist par excellence. Renske co-ordinates the creation of quilts for the annual Mennonite Relief Quilt Auction. You can read about the auction on her blog. This year the theme of the quilt she is working on now is Africa and when Mom heard about this she wanted to create a piece to be included in the quilt. I love the lady on the left - the one with the shopping bag. I can just imagine it is loaded with heavy groceries and that she is toting it home. These wall hangings will all be assembled into one large quilt that will be auctioned. I can't wait to see the finished quilt!
The theme for Quilting Gallery's Show and Tell this weekend is embroidery and one of my Mom's pieces is entered. It is titled "In My Garden". I've been showing you close-ups of the embroidery and this is the quilt that was entered. If you would like to vote for Mom's quilt you can do so here!
