Global Warming

This quilt was created for the 2011 Cotton Patch Quilters’ Show Challenge. The theme of that show was “Hot Threads, Cool Quilts,” and that made me think of climate change, and the fact that the poles, the coldest places on earth, will be most affected by climate change.

The challenge also required the use of some sort of additional texture. Hence, machine embroidery, beading, and the ruffled red satin border.
