Edna J. Patterson-Petty

Greetings All,
SAQA member Edna J. Patterson-Petty got a call before Thanksgiving that sent her into a creative frenzy. She was asked to be one of 44 quilters to make a quilt to mark the inauguration of Barack Obama. Check out this wonderful article about Edna and her work.

This show, organized by Susan Walen, is an exhibit of artquilts created by an all-volunteer, grass-roots, multi-ethnic group of fiber artists from all across the United States and as far away as Australia. Our work is in tribute to our new President, in gratitude for the hope and inspiration he has brought us. We present these art quilts to celebrate this moment in our country's history

Thank you Trish. My Obama Fabric Mosaic will be displayed with 50 other quilt artists in the Montgomery College Cafritz Art Center.

I am so proud to be a part of this historic celebration through quilts.

I am equally proud of everyone involved with the Historical Society of Washington, D. C.
