The Giving Circle – Lorraine Landroche of West Warwick, RI


The Giving Circle 

Lorraine Landroche

West Warwick, Rhode Island

I heard about this Quilt for Change challenge from my local quilting guild and was inspired by further readings on energy poverty to create “The Giving Circle”. I ran across a commercial fabric that seemed to cry out to me to answer the call. The large figure represents a Solar Sister Entrepreneur as she brings her precious gift of light to those in need. It will bring endless benefits for change and opportunity for a brighter future. I have dressed my agent in patchwork and she holds a symbol of expectation in her hands.

The fabrics are assorted materials machine pieced and assembled along with paint and embellishments. The remaining figures are from the commercial fabric that had attracted me at the beginning. They represent the lives of those who found enhancement through the power of the sun, truly a Giving Circle.  This story quilt is machine appliquéd and free-motion machine quilted.
