Art Quilt in Progress

Latest project is an art quilt for the United Nations Quilt challenge. The theme is "Women, Peace and Security" to bring attention to the hardships of women in war torn countries. My approach is to portray a woman who is in a turbulent situation but dreams of a better life. Elements of both strife and serenity will be in this piece, symbolized by a bare tree, a bird, etc. In the background I'm drawing words freehand and I'll add more layers of color. The face is complete and will have a burka appliqued on to it.
