Solar Sisters

This past Saturday I went to a quilt exhibit, Quilting For A Change, www.facebook.com/quiltchallenge at the Artist & Makers Studios in Rockville, Maryland ArtistsAndMakersStudios.com. Artists have studios here where they work, teach classes and sell their and there are changing exhibits open to the public.

I took some photos of quilts in the Solar Sister room solarsister.org. Solar Sister is a non-profit that empowers women by teaching them the potential of solar technology to bring electric power. They provide a woman-centered direct sales network to bring light, hope and opportunity to remote communities in rural Africa.

The name of this quilt is Light & Shadows Parts 1 & 2. Made by Timna Tarr, South Hadley, MA
The quilting was very closely spaced diagonal lines making the illusion of a corduroy like fabric across the surface of the 2 pieces.

There was no identification tag close to this quilt, but I was very taken with the color and movement.
