"A very meaningful project"
-- Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi, eminent scholar, curator, and creator of quilts

Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and a special former student from South Bend, Indiana, the original "Respect Quilts" I am making now feature beautiful cottons from Africa, vintage linens, and custom-designed fabrics from Black-owned businesses all around the USA--from Seattle, WA, St Louis, MO, Brooklyn, NY, Rahway, NJ, and Austin, TX. The provocative patches on the back declare "Respect Existence or Expect Resistance!" and show images of Black civil rights leader Malcolm X and words from a Bob Marley song, "One Love." For more photos and to purchase, see our store on Etsy.

Designed as a wall-hanging or a bed coverlet, these unique quilts make a warm-hearted political statement of unity. For every "Respect" quilt sold, $100 will be donated. The funds will go to the Boys and Girls Clubs of two places we call home: Saint Joseph County, IN and King County, WA. 

Price for a "Respect" quilt (54" x 76") = $549.99
 

 

Now available!: A Spooky Tale of Spring, Or, How the Grumpy Mom Got her Cheer Back

A "Christmas Carol" for our times, featuring the Covid-19 virus and a Ghostly cat, with a happy ending that shows how creativity can flower in a friendly urban setting. Illustrated by Kiera Highsmith, with historical or contextual notes by Dickens scholar, Chris VandenBossche, and animal rights activist, Wendy A. Wolfe. 40 pages, color illus. Ages 8-12 and Adult.

Murray Baumgarten, Founder of the UCSC Dickens Project writes:  "Laughter heals, and this lovely book kept me laughing. It's a wonderful tribute to Dickens's Christmas Carol, by extending it to animals. Our pets come out ahead here, knowing things it would be best for we adults to learn and take to heart. And as we laugh and chortle, we heal."  Available now at Pegasus Book Exchange in West Seattle (online), as well as other online sellers!

* As my legacy to the civil rights movement, I plan to keep on making Respect quilts indefinitely. If I keep up at

the rate of about 10 a year, I'll produce 300-some by the time I'm 93!  So please send me your old Levi jeans, if you

have any! I will pay $5 per pair, plus shipping. --Thank you.
