World Traveler

I am a stay-at-home person, but I have a quilt that’s a world traveler. The quilt, We the People, is heading to the Museum TwentseWelle in the Netherlands (Holland) for an exhibit in April. It is traveling in very good company. Here is a list of the quilts and their makers:

A Stairway to Heaven by Lisa Chipetine
AFTER: 9/14 by Judy Smith
Marty’s Quilt by Iris Frank
From Bombs, Flowers by Fulvia Luciano
Fall from Grace by Jeri Riggs
Remember me by Carol Mesimer
Remembering by Liz Berg
The Nation by Marti Plager
Kentucky Graveyard by Kathleen Loomis
We the People by Christine Thresh
A Nation in Mourning by Mary Zadrozny
Healing Hands by Sonia Callahan
Shattered Synapses by Sandra Betts
We Remember You All by Gloria Hansen
Hawks and Doves by Eileen Doughty
Shibori Reflections 9/11 by Barb McKie

Lisa Chipetine posted a notice on the QuiltArt list several months ago asking for quilts pertinent to 9-11 for an exhibition in Holland. Many quilters sent her images which she forwarded to the museum’s director. Sixteen quilts were chosen. Lisa has been handling all the rights and permissions, international shipping requirements, and thousands more details. I’ll tell you more when I know more.
