To represent her beginnings---I tore all the fabric used in this quilt. The large cross is filled with smaller torn crosses from various fabrics. The crosses are attached to the quilt with hand stitching, which allows the raw edges to turn and ravel with the natural makeup of the fabric. The sheer fabric is stenciled with a slight tilt to represent the drops of blood the American Red Cross has provided to save the lives of so many. The quilt is both machine and hand quilted using silk and cotton perle threads. I love projects and this was a fun quilt to make. But, it is now time for it to move on. I always felt it would be nice hanging in an American Red Cross office somewhere. Maybe it will??
