Merrill's quilt..........

Merrill is another of the art quilters.  She makes very unique quilts.  Every block has some 3-D effect on it.
















I took several close photos so you could see the details better.









She used a huge variety of African fabrics in this quilt.









You would have to see this quilt in person to really appreciate all of the 3-D parts.

Merrill, your quilt is amazing, and I can't begin to imagine how tedious and time consuming this labor of love, took to complete. Thank you Wanda for sharing with us. Enjoy your day.

This is truly a story quilt. The women in this quilt look like they could turn towards the viewer and tell a story of their lives and community. The materials, embellishments and design all indicate that this quilt has much to say about the inner lives of those portrayed.
