Fragile Beginning..Sixty Million and Counting!

Fragile Beginning

The spotlight is on the  60, 000,000 American  babies that have perished since 1973.  The abortion number is ten times the six million Jews  that perished in the Holocaust..and counting!                                  Worldwide, the numbers are even higher. 

A real time counter for American and babies worldwide is at 

American laws protect Eagle eggs with fines and jail but not humans. The human heartbeat begins at about 4 weeks gestation. Abortions stop a human heartbeat and end a human life

 Detroit is also called the Motor City. So, I used  a car negative space to show off the Detroit skyline and the I love Detroit text.

Made a list of the many Detroit attractions and created subway art within a heart shape on the computer that was printed on fabric and quilted with heartbeats.

It  was created for Project Quilting, season 9 called Hometown Pride.
It is 15x22.
The goal was to make it in less than a week!
