description

I taught visual art in public schools (all levels) for 35 years.  When I saw the theme for this year's Quilt Alliance Contest, Animals We Love, I decided to pay tribute to birds.  My art lessons explained the part birds played in our creative and artistic endeavors such as: architecture, clothing design, celebrations of life, and basketry which eventually led to the production of clay vessels.  The first humans looked to nature to find help for survival.  The birds were close at hand.
