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.
