We saw this image of the Virgin of Guadalupe being arrested by ICE on the internet. Maria was a bit meeker. Kit made the quilt with a more powerful Maria and smaller agents. She asked her FB friends who wanted it and gave it to Elvira Diaz (blonde woman holding it). She’s a social media maven, politics hound, inveterate canvasser for good politicians and causes, and proud mother of 2 amazing kids.
Kit explains the other Virgin Arrested by Ice Quilts she made. “When I gave the quilt to Elvira, Rosa (bottom photo blue shirt) was there and said “I want one!” Rosa advises immigrants in our community, and I would do almost anything for her. So I made her another one, which she displays in her immigration office.”
