Judges' comment: "Doesn?t honor any one woman, but notes all who have stepped forward and held themselves up for all of us. Although not dramatic at a distance a closer view reveals a subtlety swirling emerald surface, textured by superb quilting. The eddies and whirlpools of stitching only make the elevation of the glass (allegorically, the individual) more dramatic. If I could have any of these quilts in my home to view daily, this one would be it."
machine stitching, hand beading
hand-dyed cotton and silk organza; fused glass cabochon; glass seed and bugle beads
