Young Patriot

25" x 23½"

This small quilt is a compact statement of my concerns for my country and the deeper question of the validity of its values. History’s slogans and media’s catch phrases only scratch the surface of what this young adult must weigh in accepting the responsibilities of patriotism. These exciting hand-dyed batiks and the selected typewriter key beads assist me presenting today’s challenges to a young patriot.
