Sister Artist Project: Mali Heron

This lovely bird and the flowers and leaves he's surrounded by was embroidered by a woman in Mali who is being taught embroidery and other skills so that she may gain independence.  I was VERY fortunate to have the honor of creating this small  art quilt from her work.  I made the 3D needle lace leaves around the edge and sewed the border, back and sleeve on to complete the work.  It will be auctioned off in a fund raiser through the Advocicy Project in Washington, DC.
