Originally, this piece was done in an improv style to use various scraps to keep them from being thrown away. As the piece progressed, I began to see that no matter how different the scraps were, when combined, the finished piece was more cohesive than expected. While working on this I began to think about where we are as a country at this point and time. There is so much divisiveness, but it does not have to be that way. Red, blue, traditional, modern, European and other ethnicities are represented in this little quilt, and from my perspective, it works. The whole is better and stronger then the individual parts.
