Beautiful Herb Quilt Raffle

logo

Last winter, a friend of mine was looking for herb drawings to have a quilt made for a raffle to help raise money for the Trillium Center, a center for wilderness skills, self reliance and other folk arts. Leah, a community herbalist in Conneaut, Ohio, leads plant walks showing participants how to identify medicinal, edible, and poisonous plants; tell them stories, folklore, and traditional and current methods of preparing wild plants. The Trillium Center hosts a variety of educational programs, including a FREE children’s program to teach about wild edibles and medicinals.

I submitted several drawings of herbs for her to select from and the artist sewing the quilt decided to use 8 of my drawings: Dandelion, Wild Bergamot, Trillium, Chicory, Crampbark, New England Aster, Chickweed, and Marshmallow. The center of the quilt hosts the Trillium Center’s logo.
