What Carmen says about her quilt:
I participated in the International Block Swap with the aim to share with other quilters the passion I have for patchwork. When the blocks arrived and I saw the work by women from other countries, with life styles so very different compared to mine and such diverse ways to interpret the same theme, the joy I felt was enormous.
When I thought about how to join the nine blocks, I liked the idea of one big, round sun which would unify all the blocks. This is what I wanted to show in my work: The blocks placed on one big sun, the sunbeams reflected in the hand quilting and the names of the nine women embroidered onto the quilt.
It was a pleasure to share this experience with you.
