IMQE 2018 "Dancing In The Moonlight"

IMQE bio --Mini Quilt "DANCING IN THE MOONLIGHT" by Suzanne Chickite 
My name is Suzanne Chickite (Meegwat) and my partner was from Texas. We were team #197. I am from a first nation Indian reservation in Cape Mudge on Quadra Island British Columbia Canada. Tammy is from Texas. We decided to incorporate something from our local culture. My mini quilt is a play on our local culture here. This is my first mini art quilt I've done. Our Summer Challenge from my local Quilters Guild gave me part of the  idea. Mixed media is the theme here. Traditional quilting, applique, embroidery, crystals and buttons. The first nations people here use button blankets in their dancing ceremonies. You can look online about the beautiful button blankets the northwest coast first nations people make. This mini quilt is a play on that. The moon design in the center was drawn by a first nation artist and relative Max Chickite. I digitized the design. I didn't connect too much with Tammi as she was busy in a big move and internet problems. But she did invite me into her busy life somewhat and I did learn a bit about what it is like in Texas.
