Can't get enough Obama quilts 2

I hadn't realized the exhibit at the The Historical Society of Washington, D.C was only open to "Quilters of Color." I'm not really surprised, since so much "contemporary art" is deemed worthy by the skin/genitals/biography of the artist and not the actual work.

It'll be interesting to revisit these quilts in a couple of years and see if they hold up.

Meanwhile, for your viewing pleasure, quilted portraits of K'Ehleyr, er, Mrs. O*.

(How does K'Ehleyr not merit her own Wikipedia page?)

* OK, I feel bad about the cheap shot. K'Ehleyr didn't deserve that.
