When I made Woman Woman’s Daughter, I did not have India’s camping trip in mind. I had made a quilt called Woman Warrior that I donated for auction at a “Women of Color Attorneys” conference. (Woman Warrior ended up in a loving home in Houston, Texas). I had some nice scraps left over so I thought I might as well put them in a quilt. Woman Warrior’s Daughter was the result.

Well, now that India is back from five days in the wilderness, cooking her own food, peeing in the woods, and sleeping in the rain, it seemed like the perfect time to show this quilt. I don’t think she had to kill her own food, but she did share an experience where there was almost a small war over a camp site. Luckily Reverend Allen, the adult leader of India’s team,  intervened and reminded the young warriors about the grace of sharing.

I hope you like Woman Warrior’s Daughter. I like the “can do” spirit I see in my daughter this week.
