A thread of hope stitched through Americas history.

I might be heading back to Washington DC again this winter with the Dalvero Academy. It's a great place to research and fill your blank inspiration board with some new projects. Last year during this session I completed these stamps I designed for the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. These stamps represent and symbolize the importance of having a message of peace and hope in America.  During the civil war women made quilts sewing inscriptions against slavery and the separating of families. These quilts were a way for women in the North to have a voice against slavery and a platform to speak their ideas of hope and peace in America.
