Welcome to the Quilting Board!
An amazing quilt. You should be proud of your friend for making a quilt that traveled around the world with the International Quilt Show. Tell her thanks for sharing her masterpiece.
As a former belly dancer I love the quilt. You use muscles you never thought existed and the exercise is great. The colors and design are very so inspiring. Yes the ladies have a lot of hips to roll around. Hugs

Homage to My Hips
these hips are big hips.
they need space to
move around in.
they don't fit into little
petty places. these hips
are free hips.
they don't like to be held back.
these hips have never been enslaved,
they go where they want to go
they do what they want to do.
these hips are mighty hips.
these hips are magic hips.
i have known them
to put a spell on a man and
spin him like a top

It's incredible. What a great talent your friend has.
Wow! She sure has a gift! Beautiful!!!
