Memorial Quilt

Filed under: Item of the Day — Jason Onerheim @ 12:01 am

A memorial quilt made for Margaret Hill, member of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, in 2009. The quilt was created by two of her students, Jackie Anderson and Cecelia Olson. The rectangular machine-quilted quilt includes 15 color photo-transferred images showing Hill either teaching or working on basketry and beadwork projects and also illustrating her finished work.
