Charlotta's Cross of Many Colors

The Open Door Community is a Protestant Catholic Worker House in Atlanta. I have known the folks there since they opened the place 25+ years ago and for eight years I was privileged to be involved in their work as a volunteer. I made this quilt - which from time to time hangs in the room used for dining, meetings, soup-kitchen and worship. I started making the individual crosses to experiment with stack and whack and my best friend and quilting buddy Michelle gave me the idea for the design and layout of the final quilt. I gave it to the Open Door in December 2007.

I *love* the design. How did you possibly come up with it?
