Celebrate America!

This is a small wall hanging I made for my friend, Mrs. Drew. She is an awesome artist in many mediums. She used to teach art as well as create art. She is retired now and teaches her grandson the art of Japanese calligraphy as he learns all the Kanji symbols. We became friends when I worked in Juno Beach. She is Japanese American and her husband was an officer in the Coast Guard. She loves America so I made these traditional quilt star blocks with red, white, and blue fabric. The square in the center has images of Kokeshi Dolls, a traditional folk art in Japan. Mrs. Drew hangs this on her condo is an honor. Close up of the block below:
