Totally thrilled to win my first quilt show entry!!!

Arizona Quilters Guild
Honorary Mention in the Themed Category - Salute America
and
Judge's Recognition  - Favorite Overall in Entire Show!!




“Un-biased Nation”

January 2017
Original Design

Pieced and quilted  and embellished by Bonnie Bobman


This improvised piece represents America and the values of diversity, inclusion, and creativity in the face of adversity. The fabric comes from local shops across the country – some scrap fabric and some treasured prints. Representing the varying shades of this country’s people and the spectrum of opinions we hold dear, it symbolizes how our country is greatest when the pieces work together. It has flaws, but in it I see many communities sharing stories and learning from each other. Most importantly, like America, it remains a work in progress

Dimensions:  25” x 49”
