Divided Souls in the United States of America

The spirit of a once united country is no more.  We are split between the socialists and capitalists, and the progressives and the conservatives.We are pro choice for the rights of a woman or pro life, for the rights of the unborn. We are now a divided nation along class, gender, political party, race, and religion. The quilt is a challenge for the theme, Day of the Dead.

Materials: aluminum, beads, charms, cottons, ribbons, sequins, trims
Embossing, sanding and stitching on metals, machine embroidered hands, hand and machine quilting. Patriot font digital quilt, designed in Make the Cut software, printed on fabric.
