Tuesday was Quilt Guild and we had a wonderful speaker and trunk show. Our guest was Carlene Buck and all of her wonderful quilts. Go check them out, you'll be glad you did. The most amazing quilts she saved for last.
|Holocaust: A Hate Movement|
Her quilt "Holocaust: A Hate Movement" is a very amazing quilt. There are more details about it on her site. When we first came in to the room, the swastikas jumped out at me. Then I saw the Star Of David blocks and I knew there had to be a story. Carlene visited Israel in 1992 with a church group and visited Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust Museum. It was then that she knew God wanted her to make a quilt about the Holocaust. Later she visited the National Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. and this was the vision she had.

Tonight I'm off the the The Omaha Quilters Guild Quilt show. I'm ready to be inspired again!
