"Fractured Little Red School House"

@eacox24 was our Queen ๐Ÿ for the modern quilt bee group I'm in. I decided to make an extra block to send.
Her prompt was so moving. It was "deconstructed".
I must say, if we in America don't think our children's safety and education equality for ALL is not at risk for major deconstruction, we are disillusioned to say the least.

All of my cut pieces for the #politicalquilt top. Loving the stars/blue theme. The goal is to get the top finished this week (with an ultimate goal to have it finished by March 3rd.) I have to say, I live doing these #politicalquilts! (#campaignquilts?) #quiltsofinstagram #politicalquilting #quilts #craftivist #craftivism #womensart #resist #theresistance #modernquilts #modernquilting #quilts #textileart #fabricart
Starting my next #politicalquilt today. (Still working on my #loveislove #quilt, but I do better if I have 2-3 going at a time.) I ๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ’Ÿ this fabric because it totally nails the feeling of my quilt, in both theme and color. It's another for a congressional candidate and, as you can tell by the color, hoping to help #flipitblue.

My first #politicalquilt, a piece I did in support of #briannawu and her congressional run for #ma08. (By the way, I'm not that tall-standing on a stool. ๐Ÿ˜‰) I'm challenging everybody who believes in #flipitblue #bluewave #bluetsunami #voteblue #theresistance to support great candidates by volunteering, donating, supporting in any way you can!

I love making #quilts to donate, to give warmth and love in the form of a big, soft, fuzzy #quilt, but there's another side to my #quilting, another side to my #craftivism - #politicalquilting. #politicalquilts involve a lot more planning & execution, but I am *loving* making them. This is a shot of my first #politicalquilt blocks back in July and pretty much my first blocks that are more than just simple squares, but wait until you see the finished project! #quilting #craftivist #womensart #modernquilt #modernquilting #textileart #fabricart #briannawu

Our bee mate E.A. @eacox24 is queen in February.
She gave us a thoughtful, moving, intensely private prompt.
The quilt will be, I believe, the most moving of the bee. I can't wait to see what my friends interpret from our "deconstructed" prompt.
I went personal for me with my first block.
As y'all know, I believe we are in a crucial place here in the USA. I chose to deconstruct our symbol, the flag.
Then I put her back together. Much how I pray America will during these times.
I used @quilterpatsloan free flag pattern then cut away.
Hope this speaks to you my bee mate.

More about "Beyond The Bed Covers" on the blog today, which features quilts by Faith Ringgold (yes, that #faithringgold!), @entropies, @laurapetrovichcheney, the pictures of AIDS quilt, and more, including my #womensmarch protest banner. What an honor and thrill it was to be a part of (plus I shared more of my NYC quilt inspiration)!

Exciting day in NYC! Visited my #womensmarch quilt in the @airgallery exhibit curated by @laurapetrovichcheney, up until Nov. 12.

My Women's March quilt is hanging at the @airgallery as part of the Beyond The Bed Covers exhibition, showing how quilts can be used in unique ways (it looks small here but it covered most of my body during the #womensmarchonwashington!). Thanks to the curator and my friend @laurapetrovichcheney for sharing this picture with me.

My favorite pieces of art within @911memorial museum ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ - my first time seeing it all. Wow. I was a child on 9/11/01 and I remember it so vividly, especially being so close in NJ. Scroll for artist credits I could find (plus 3 and 4 are by Spencer Finch). If you find yourself in New York, and you're ready to take it all in, make sure you go. #911museum #politicalquilt #neverforget

Second block's stitching done for @sjsacademy. If you aren't familiar with the Social Justice Sewing Academy, check the account. Young students learn about power, privilege and oppression and take those lessons into self-expression and activism. All design, cutting and gluing is done by young artists and stitching is done by volunteers so the blocks can be made into quilts. This feels like a great way to take being an ally into action. If you want to volunteer, send a DM to @sjsacademy #sewingactivism #politicalquilt

Why do I make political quilts? My personal goal is to be hopeful, never hateful. I've explained in depth and answered some reader questions on the blog today, link in bio.

a little over 24 hours left til the deadline... this might actually happen, despite car crap taking up so much unexpected time (i have a courtesy car now, no thanks to ICBC!). i still need to write two artist's statements though, that's always the hard part.... #threadsofresistance #echoquilting #politicalquilt #queerquilter

Sara Knight's @saraakay first quilt. Was touring SFAI Grad Students Open Studios today and it caught my eye. Quilts with a message. Some Tracy Emin influence possibly? See Sara's web address swipe left.

These are not your average cuddly quilts, but stitched expression of political voices. Opening on April 21st: "Three Left Coast Artists: Linda Gass, Linda MacDonald, and Gyongy Laky" is based on Barbara Shapiro's essay about these 3 artists' devotion to their chosen political causes. This piece is by MacDonald and has a fascinating story. "Freedom-- It's about energy and when oil crises occur, companies pump more and more.ย There are always spills and those horse head pumps have to work so hard.ย  Sort of silly, but I like seeing those pumps in reality continually working and can't help, but think they might want to be unchained.ย This pump has broken free from continually slavery and can frolic away.ย  The ones in the background are all doing something different from their job." This show will run April 21-July 16. @macdonaldpainter www.sjquiltmuseum.org, lindamacdonald.com  #sjmqt #PoliticalQuilt #artandpolitics #dtsj #barbarashapiro #EnvironmentalArt #lindamacdonaldquilt #modernquilt

Tea and Skittles 40โ€ณ x 48โ€ณ (2016) by Thomas Knauer. "It has been more than four years since Trayvon Martin was murdered by George Zimmerman. I am also done being silent. It is my responsibility to speak, not as a quilter, or as a public figure (of sorts), but as a human being. It is doubly my responsibility because I am a white man. It is my responsibility because as long as those who hold places of privilege remain silent this dreadful history will continue to be written. And I am very much privileged here in America simply by the chance truth of my birth-sex and the color of my skin."-Knauer  http://www.thomasknauersews.com/original-sin/  See this quilt starting April 21: http://www.sjquiltmuseum.org/upcoming-exhibitions/ #ModernQuilt #FiberArt #trayvonmartin #PoliticalQuilt #SJMQT

Women's March quilt - block 2
Women's March quilt - block 2
At the Women's March on Washington, I saw a woman carrying a simple cardboard sign with "resistance is fruitful" written on it in black marker. This message has really stuck with me since then. And while I'm unabashedly liberal, I don't think you have to be to embrace the message of activism, standing up for what you believe in, and working for what you think is right. Also, I finally got the multiple pictures thingamajig to work, so swipe for back and details shots. #resistance #ResistanceIsFruitfulQuilt #womensmarchonwashington #womensmarch #modernquilt #politicalquilt #2017falq2lobstervb #threadsofresistance

I collected autographs of #hillaryclinton #billclinton #berniesanders #tomharkin and #debbiestabenow along with other important politics names back in Iowa on fabric I designed and had printed through @spoonflower I've always wanted to send out fabric to other elected officials and see who would send them back.

Comments will be included at my discretion and based on space limitations. Thanks in advance! ๐Ÿ˜Š #resistancequilts #modernquilting #modernquilt #freemotionquilting #quiltingwordswithfreemotion #handquilting #politicalart #politicalquilt
Hadn't touched this since before the election. Finally making progress on my Audre Lorde improv quilt. #audrelordequilt #politicalquilt #womenarepowerfulanddangerous #htwipit #workinprogress
Yay political quilts! โ˜ฎ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช This beautiful piece is on display @ctr4chr - made by the Peach State Stitchers. The border represents 42 different countries fighting for civil and human rights. #politicalquilt #centerforcivilandhumanrights

Auditioning borders. Ideally I'd use the solid gray from the text but I'm almost out and it doesn't match anything on my kona color card (darker than graphite but lighter than charcoal). The Alison Glass spheres print is a pretty good color match, but do I want a print for the border? It's 48x48 now. Thinking 60x60 total? #ResistanceIsFruitfulQuilt #politicalquilts #politicalquilt #quilting #htwipit @hawthornethreads

Anyone else fired up for the long weekend? What better way to celebrate Presidents Day than by stitching up a powerful statement to the patriarchy! Get your copy of the pattern: digital downloads are available on my site. (Link in profile)

I think there was actual smoke coming out of my sewing machine for as furious as my quilting was on this one. I'm gonna keep going. Rawr. #persist #resist #neverthelessshepersisted โœจ๐Ÿ’ช

Crossroads block 3. One of the simplest and probably most important way of activism is voting. It is our highest civic duty to support our democracy and to honor our right to regular, free and fair elections. Let's start thinking about 2018 midterm elections now and pledge to vote. The power to change is in our hands. Every vote counts. More on the blog.

Fully inspired by my #ebmq group meeting last night, Iโ€™m gonna tackle this new project. And maybe, just maybe, Iโ€™ll turn this #regularquilt into a #politicalquilt. Thanks to this group of crazy quilters for the inspiration. โœจ

To our friends in the US, please remember to vote tomorrow. This great country, which has gone to the moon and back with ideals of freedom and equality, must continue to strive to be a beacon of hope and land of opportunity for all. Terror and fear can never triumph. Remember also that sometimes it is rocket science. Rhetoric alone will not build a rocket. Thank you to #quiltfestival for the amazing #quiltshow and to @equilterfabrics for the awesome exhibit. It was truly inspiring. #tothemoonandback #gotv #getoutthevote #politicalquilt #spacetravel #amazing #quiltmarket

I loved @coopcrafts idea of making @zibergirls @sotosewn #imwithher block for my descendants to find someday in the family history memorabilia. 
lost points, totally wonky,
running out of neutrals...it's far from perfect but absolutely describes this quilt and election cycle. ๐Ÿ˜‰ @hillaryclinton #imwithher #imwithherquilt #quilt #itsok #notperfect #nastywoman #politicalquilt #imsewwithher
Detail of previous image; an appliquรฉ block of a 19th century civil war/women's rights quilt. The quilt is covered in beautiful tiny little details like the embroidered Angels visible here on either side of the star #craftinghistory #metmuseum #stitchart #stitchwork #politicalquilt #quilt #quilting #handquilting #applique
"Woman's Rights Quilt" (Illinois ca. 1875): A detailed 19th century appliquรฉ quilt featuring scenes both of the American Civil War and the push for women's rights. It's possible that the quilt presents a satire of the latter, given the images of a woman leaving her husband and child to fend for themselves as she heads off to fight for the cause and another image of the child praying alone (for mother to come home?). Either way, a fascinating combination of subjects in one quilt. It's part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's "American Quilts and Folk Art" exhibit on display through August 7 #craftinghistory #quilt #quilting #crafting #sewing #applique #historyofquilting #historyofcrafting #politicalquilt #stitchwork #stitchart #needlework #metmuseum
