The featured quilt of the week in the Februiariy 14, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter continued our celebration of Black History Month. The quilt is called Mother and Child and it was created by Michelle Willis. It was recently exhibited in the 2009 Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Show.
 
This quilt starts with a pre-printed panel in the middle. The panel depicts an ageless symbol of a mother’s love.

Michelle accented the panel with luscious blues and browns to create a beautiful wallhanging that measures 38 x 58 inches. The quilt was pieced and quilted by Michelle.
 
Wonder what this mother is whispering in her child’s ear? Do you remember your mother’s whisper even now?
