Instead of making a blog entry here on my own blog about my newly completed quilted painting (art quilt), called "Philadelphia Freedom: Two of Paring Knives," I took Dawn Goldsmith up on writing a guest entry for her very wonderful blog Subversive Stitchers: Women Armed with Needles. Please go over and enjoy it.
After you read my Subversive Stitchers blog entry, please go see my website's 2010 Gallery page about this same piece, "Philadelphia Freedom," whose main theme is the nine enslaved Africans kept illegally at the President's House in Philadelphia from 1790 to 1797, by President and Mrs Washington. It is also another Minor Card piece in my Kitchen Tarot project. You'll find a long statement in that gallery page on TurtleMoon.com.
Oh, and my blog entry on Subversive Stitchers ends with an Eva's Art update. But it's not THIS piece:
Save Christmas Run Swimming Pool Wooster Ohio, in the photos section. If you're in Wooster, you can order the shirts at Spa Collections or Wooster Natural Foods.
By the way, our City Pool opened this last Sunday, June 6, and it'll be open for sure, both this summer and next, thanks to all who worked, and continue to work so hard to keep raising the needed funds! Bravo!
I'm making my entry for the SAQA online reverse auction, and will post it here when it's done. Then it'll be time to start my Quilt National entry, which I can't post anywhere, due to entry rules. It'll be about the Oil Spill and Healing the Oceans and Coastlines.
