Statue of Liberty’s torch

My photograph was accepted to be showcased in Houston for the International Quilt Festival, November 3-6, 2011!  The theme is Eye of the Quilter: Friendship.  My photograph is called Statue of Liberty: Friendship Between Two Nations.

Today is The Statue of Liberty's 125th birthday.  She was a gift from France on October 28th, 1886.  It signifies "the Alliance of the two Nations in achieving the Independence of the United States and attests their abiding friendship".

The photograph is an image of my quilt made with 1/4 inch strips and squares.  It took me 20 hours to fuse the strips to a background.  As it hangs on my wall it looks like a tapestry.  It was made especially for the exhibition.
