    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

    one of my all-time favorite poems, by lucille clifton (this quilt reminds me of it!)


    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

    Wow!! How cool. I took belly dancing lessons when I was young. It was lots of fun! This reminds me of those days.

    I didn't know until today that this had been posted. Thank you all for your kind words. It was great fun to see people's reactions to the quilt at the Woodcarvers & Quilt Expo. I love the hip poem. Shimmy on!
