Our January 12th Workshop

Yet another productive day of quilting and quilt planning. We were joined by Anayda, Erma, Martha, Linda, Karen, Ellen, Sam, and Sarah.

It was interesting to see Martha's square for several reasons. Besides the fact that it gives us a glimpse of what the quilt will look like, it also focuses on the theme of the farmworker's hand; a symbol of the pain, hard work, and generosity of these people. Quite literally the hand that feeds us.

Sam drove all the way from Sarasota to participate in the workshop - it's very inspiring to see his dedication to the community. It was also very nice to have Ellen, Sarah's daughter, help us out. Like her mother, Ellen's a gifted artist and had a lot of great ideas to contribute.
