One of the suggested themes for the quilt squares to be made by volunteers who were at the Best Friends hurricane relief center in Tylertown, Mississippi, (see previous post) is "How I got to Tylertown." One of the disturbing images in the media after Hurricane Katrina was of a boxer-type dog trapped in a house, peering out a window. In a previous post, I mentioned that these images were so upsetting, that I had to take action and go volunteer.
So, to show "how I got to Tylertown," I've depicted a boxer with a mournful expression in a window, but one with an Indian fabric curtain. The dog was my inspiration for going, and the Indian curtain represents how I was able to make the trip--with money made by selling Indian textiles. Hokey, I know.
