Quilt for Ricky Martin Foundation

This wall hanging, which I recently completed, was commissioned by an individual in Australia as a gift for the Ricky Martin Foundation in Puerto Rico.  This charity fights human trafficking, particularly child exploitation.
My client and I collaborated on the design :
  • The background is the Puerto Rican flag with the heading “No La Trata Humana” which reads no human trafficking in Spanish.   I stated in my first email, this wall hanging will be a gift for a charity that fights Human Trafficking, particularly child exploitation.
  • The yellow flower is an old Puerto Rican symbol for the sun.  The charity’s logo is appliquéd in the centre of the flower with some of the governing values of the charity in the ‘petals’.
  • Taino symbols are quilted into the blue section of the flag.

This piece now hangs in the offices of the Ricky Martin Foundation in Puerto Rico.
