While we most commonly think of the love that quilts create, they are also an avenue of expression. This can range from frustration and anger to admiration and joy, honoring a person to presenting social issues. As part of the exhibit A Better World: Heroes working for the greater good (www.ABetterWorldExhibition.com) which includes quilts and essays, we will look at Valerie’s quilt “Hell and Hope” as well as samples from international quilt exhibits.
