The whole concept for this quilt came to me soon after the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, in December, 2012. The black piping and gray/black behind the stars is intended to create a somber mood, while the appliquéd handgun completes the message.

It is very tragic that gun violence in the United States occurs so often that the message in this quilt has no chance to fade away.
