(these are 1930’s reproduction fabrics)
During the 1930’s a quilt revival took place due to the depression
and hard economic times. Women began to gather and quilt
Eleanor Roosevelt began to campaign for the American Arts and Crafts
movement which further encouraged women to quilt.
When I saw this fabric I thought of my daughter, Taj.
I guess because of her name. This fabric has an exotic feel because of the pyramids and elephants.
She is named after the Taj Mahal.
Her dad had gone there and thought it was so beautiful.
This fabric reminds me of moons…
interesting squares and stars…
a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt that I am stitching onto a cloth
I call,” Be Strong“. I started this last year when I was having
a difficult time and it seems appropriate to finish now.
