Migrant Quilt Project

Just a quick link to a local news story about the Migrant Quilt Project I am involved in.  We are preparing quilts for a national tour including the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, Massachusetts and the International Quilt Study Center and Museum in Nebraska.  Click here for the news story.

This is the quilt I did for the project last year. It features a silhouette of Fr. Kino, the first European in the Tucson area, who I consider our first border crosser.  Yes, he came south to Tucson from what we call Mexico today.
