My BFF from college, Anita, recently had a baby girl. Anita is an incredible, compassionate woman who loves all living things and is respectful of Mother Earth. She makes such an impression on all those she touches want to be a better human being.
Anita and her husband, James, are first-generation Americans. Their McDesi union created this amazing little girl. I wanted to make something for her that represented and honored the heritage of her mom and dad. The design is an Irish Chain with the green representing James’ Irish lineage, and the purple represents Anita’s Indian lineage.
I hope Arya will treasure it, because it is the only quilt I will ever make.
