Top 20 Quilts of 2017: #3, Carolyn Mazloomi's Quilt

"Spirit of Forgiveness" by Carolyn Mazloomi 
This month, I am posting a series of blogs counting down my top 20 quilts of the year. All the quilts were acquired by the collection in 2017, and they represent four centuries of American quilts. 

Most of my Top 20 Quilts of 2017 are antique or vintage, but Carolyn Mazloomi made this masterpiece in 2014. This very special quilt tells the story of Adriaan Johannes Vlok, who was the Minister of Law and Order in South Africa from 1986 to 1991 during the final years of the apartheid era. As atonement for his despicable acts, he asked to wash the feet of mothers of some of the black men he ordered killed. Carolyn Mazloomi's stunning quilt. "Spirit of Forgiveness" is one of my favorite acquisitions of 2017. To read more about it, click here.
