Creating art quilts is how I can be "plaid" in a "striped" world.

Carrizo Plain 22" x 60"
It has been such a difficult, sometimes frightening, often appalling year under trump and the republicans. So I am doubly pleased that my final art quilt of 2017 I consider one of my best. I used my husband's panorama photograph of Carrizo Plain National Monument last spring. The darkness descended upon us by the election of 2016 was pierced by a very rare wildflower super bloom so brilliant it could be seen from the space station. It was all too brief and Carrizo Plain remains on trump's chopping block, but now I can rest my eyes upon that sublime moment any time I enter my living room. Mr. trump, the first Law of Karma is whatever we put into the universe will come back to us.
