Quilts and Human Rights Wins Prize

The Quilts and Human Rights book that I was honored to co-author with my Michigan State University Museum colleagues, Marsha MacDowell, Lynne Swanson and Mary Worrall was awarded the prestigious Chicago Folklore Prize from the University of Chicago. You can find a review of it on the World Literature Today site, https://www.worldliteraturetoday.org/2016/november/quilts-and-human-rights-marsha-macdowell-mary-worrall-lynne-swanson-beth-donaldson. If you haven't got your copy yet, you can find it at Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/Quilts-Human-Rights-Marsha-MacDowell/dp/0803249853.

You can also find many quilts from the book and many other quilts about human rights on the Quilt Index website, http://www.quiltindex.org/search_results.php?collection=Quilts%20and%20Human%20Rights.

Just downloaded my EQ8 upgrade and will be trying it out tonight.
