Quilt honoring my amazing grandmother
I feel a special kinship to my maternal grandmother who made many sacrifices for us. She left her village for two years and moved to Bombay so I could attend an English school. She married at thirteen and raised ten children. She couldn’t read or write but was patient, kind, caring and hard working. The quilt has a phototransfer of another quilt I made with her portrait( and my mother) set in a Kaleidoscope program. It is embellished with lots of shisha mirrros.
