Hello Gals & Guys. I am so very thrilled and honoured to announce Roe v Wade has been excepted and juried into Quilt Canada 2020 happening this June in Edmonton, Canada.
This colourful and interactive word quilt is called Roe v Wade. To follow along, and understand it’s relevant message, please Google Roe v Wade and open in Wikipedia.
My draw towards innovation, coupled with my interest in civic and human rights and desire to do a different take on a word quilt, lead me to design Roe v Wade. This quilt contains 750, 3 inch curved units, measures 75 inches wide and 90 inches long and was made using the Hover-quilting technique.
In place of using actual letters and numbers, I assigned each letter of the alphabet and numbers 0 through 9 a different colour to spell out a message I felt spoke to our time and my concerns about reproductive rights for women.
Using colour in place of text, this quilt spells out Roe v Wade as defined in Wikipedia.
Under the Trump administration law makers have become emboldened, eroding a woman’s right to a safe and legal abortion free from excessive government restriction. This has to stop. The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a women’s life, to her wellbeing and dignity. This should be her decision alone.
The Roe v Wade Quilt was made to unite women and help promote positive conversation and positive change. Please share this post for support with all women and supportive men in your community/province/state/territory or country.
