In honor of the brave step that the Israeli government took in releasing so many prisoners and bringing Gilad Shalit home --
This quilt is an expression of my hopes for peace. It was ordered by a friend in Chicago who asked for a coexistence quilt mainly using the color teal.The women in Laquiya offered to make something special but after searching in the market, they couldn't find the right color thread. So,the piece of embroidery that they offered me includes a bit of teal combined with yellow and orange. It turned out to be a pretty combination. This quilt is meant to be a design element on a couch -- the size of a lap quilt. The stacked bricks are made of a pretty floral print that brings out the teal.
