I created and donated this queen-size quilt for the People of Color Caucus of the Society for Disability Studies.  Purchased by a private collector, the sale generated $1,500 for the Chris Bell Scholarship Fund which benefits disabled people of color.

It is very hard to photograph because of its size.  So I photographed it from top to bottom in three overlapping sections. Then I put small images of each ‘panel’.  The quilt has roughly 5 rows with 3 panels on each row.  Each individual panel image links to its own page where I talk more about that specific panel.
