"Blood & Oil: The Peace Quilt" (1990)

This quilt was made as a gut reaction to the Gulf War as a direct result of watching CNN's coverage of bombs falling on Baghdad, Iraq. The background uses a technique by Mary Mashuta called 'pushed neutrals'. Shown at the San Francisco Quilt Guild show in 1990. It was on display at the law firm of McKenna & Cuneo, LLP 1997-2000.
