When my community experienced a devastating flood this last fall, my art quilt bee decided to make prayer flags.
The background fabric is commercially printed batik. The fabric for the hands is a piece that I had painted with fabric paint. The hands are fused onto the batik. On the surface I used brown paint to stamp horizontal lines.
My art quilt bee strung all of the prayer flags together that the members made and displayed them at our annual quilt show. The compassion and good will that came from neighbors helping one another to recover continues even now. It will be a long time before our community is made whole and recovers from the damage that occurred.
