Pictured are (left to right) Ruth May Marble Hoisington, Martha Acenath Hakes Marble, Nancy Lee Montgomery, Edith Ruth Hoisington Montgomery, ancestors and mothers who have come before me, from whom I have much to learn. When I struggle with the difficult task of motherhood I look to them.This quote by Neil A. Maxwell says what I feel of their work and mine. (Quote is on the quilt.) 48" x 25" - 2005

This stunning quilt further underscores the importance of the family; societies are only as strong as the foundation it's built on and that is strong and stable family units. I love the generations here and the bonds of love passed on to each woman.

I have seen this beautiful quilt before in magazines and fell in love. Wish I could do portraits to honor each person

Cannot have one without the other. It's because of the military can women sing their lullables. People can try and change history, but there are those who lived it and will tell it.
