Artist: Carla Thompson, Lakota
Size: 75" x 77" (Queen)
Star quilts in the Lakota culture are made to be given away. Quilts have become integrated into every aspect of Lakota life, and are used whenever people hold celebrations perceived as traditional - including naming ceremonies, weddings, births and memorials.
Thompson selects the four directional colors to put on a white background to create the traditional star design. Her hand-quilted stitching lends textural appeal creating a beautiful piece of art. Quilt is made of a polyester/cotton blend fabric and filled with cotton/polyester fiberfill. Machine washable.
