Happy President’s Day!

Dream the Impossible Dream by Latifah Shakir

It seems no matter what the celebration, quilters capture it in quilts. Latifah Shakir captured her admiration for President Barack Obama in her quilt called Dream the Impossible Dream. Her quilt is heavily embellished with buttons, shells, beads, ribbons and re-cycled materials.

Latiifah made her quilt during President Obama’s election campaign. She says she, “experienced excitement, frustration, highs and lows during the election of 2008; however, it was worth it. The making of this quilt will live with me forever.”

Dream the Impossible Dream is included in the book Journey of Hope by Carolyn Mazloomi. Pick up a copy to read more about this remarkable quilt.
