All Things Being Equal

 All Things Being Equal, 12x12

All Things Being Equal, 12x12

This quilt was made for the SAQA Benefit Auction.  The deadline has been extended to June 9 for arrival at their facility.  Just yesterday I decided I had a few hours to make something and came up with an idea of using improv equal signs in a simple vertical layout.  My goal is to spread the word about equality in all things in life and this may mean different things to different people.  Gender equality, marriage equality, pay equality, racial equality.  What does it mean to you? 

I had these scraps saved from the Maria Shell class I took last month.  I plan to get back to that one soon, but in the mean time I had some strips already cut and ready to use.  I created six different strip sets and roughly cut them to 2.5" lengths.  Then I rearranged them to make this design.  I needed a bit more width, so I made another set of the black and white version and created one strip with just black and white.

I did some simple channel quilting which is so easy on a small piece like this!  Last night I finished the binding, label and sleeve on the back.  This will be donated to the SAQA benefit auction and will be auctioned off this fall.
