Can you find all of these words in the quilt?:

ENTREPRENEUR, SOLAR SISTERS, SOLAR POWER, OPPORTUNITY, DIRECT SALES, COMMUNITIES, SUSTAINABLE, NON PROFIT, EMPOWERS, NETWORK, BUSINESS, CONNECT, BENEFITS, TRAINING, EDUCATE, HOLISTIC, RECRUIT, ENERGY, DONATE, FUTURE, INCOME, WOMEN, AFRICA, INVEST, FAMILY, RURAL, LAMPS, STUDY, LIGHT, HOPE, NEED, FUND, HELP, KITS, BUY, SUN

This challenge was designed to raise awareness and to encourage support for the important work being carried out by Solar Sister in Africa!

I used 1 inch (2.54 cm) strips of yellow and orange fabric to weave the background. After planning out the word layout on graph paper, I used fabric paint and rubber stamps to add the letters to each square. Fusible appliqué women and suns similar to Solar Sister‘s logo were added in some of the spaces between the words. I used a walking foot to quilt the 1 inch grid pattern and finished the quilt with a narrow binding made of an African print.
