Imagine Peace - The John Lennon Peace Wall in Prague, Czech Republic was my inspiration. I wanted to share a message of PEACE. Each of the 472 different colors, prints and textured fabrics used in the background are meant to represent the people of the world. All different. Some work well together and others don't. But together, it is beautiful. The peace sign and the word, IMAGINE are intertwined within the background and represent the complicated task of finding personal peace and learning to live respectfully with people who are different from you. Words and phrases about the world as a better place are hand embroidered and written with permanent pen within the scrappy background. The words and phrases were given to me by friends when I asked them to fill in this statement, " Imagine the world________. I wanted the quilt to spark conversation and make everyone aware that peace begins with each of us. The quilt measures 62" x 62". It is machine pieced, hand emboidered and machine quilted. The close up view shows a few of the embroidered and written words.

This quilt is part of my personal collection. NFS
