Quilts and Human Rights

One of my quilts has been published in a book called "Quilts and Human Rights," from the University of Nebraska press. This is a stunning book, with a foreword by Desmond Tutu, and many quilts that go far beyond simple geometric patterns! I feel honored to be a part of it.

Here's the publisher's website:,677178.aspx

The book is also available on Amazon:*Version*=1&*entries*=0
