Baby carriers--connected across cultures and generations. Tree of life images--connected across cultures and generations. Motherhood and fatherhood--connected across cultures and generations. We are all connected--to the generations from the past, to the generations of today, to the generations to come. This quilt, created in the form of a baby carrier, celebrates not only the hopes and dreams I had for my son when he was being carried (and who now is fifteen years old) but for the hopes and dreams for each baby being carried--born with strong roots, and blessed with an amazing potential for what lies ahead. Cotton, silk, synthetics of unknown content, specialty threads, hand and machine appliqué, machine embroidered and quilted
