These quilts are for our sheroes past and present!

Women around the world are fighting back and SPEAKING OUT LOUD: This quilt, by Nancy Raven, was inspired by our President’s statement that these women should go back to the country they come from… but also in admiration of the women themselves and the courage they represent.
Autumn Harry of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe is one of my pandemic Sheroes as she fishes trout for her tribe. Quilt by Kit Miller
Kit Miller celebrates Shirley Chisholm as the first black woman elected to the United States Congress, the first black candidate for a major party’s nomination for President of the United States, and the first woman to run for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, as well as the first woman to appear in a United States presidential debate. The campaign button is from Maya Miller’s collection from her lifetime as an activist.
Kit Miller made this quilt because “Like many Americans across the country, I was incensed when corruptrump scrapped the long awaited changeover to the Harriet Tubman $20 bill. Schoolchildren across the nation have voted for her to be on the money because she was a heroine who bravely freed thousands of enslaved people. The quilt shows a few things about her life especially the Drinking Gourd and North Star pointing the way (thanks Penny).”
