This is the spread as it appears in Kim's book. On the left I've created a collage out of an 1800s quilt remnant and used vintage and found hardware for a timeworn appearance.

Lisa J's contribution to Kim's book Fragments, Vestiges & Remains
I've finally finished my piece in Kim's lovely book. So far all of the participants have created a piece based on a historical event in their homeland. For my part, I've used the extraordinary photographs of Dorothea Lange to assemble a piece about the midwest migrant farmers in the1930s...a time of hope and despair when the worst drought of modern American history struck the Great Plains. I've also used some quotes from "The Grapes of Wrath" by John Steinbeck as his novel is based upon these people and their stories.
