This quilt “Lucille Ball: A Multimedia Megastar" of Lucille Ball was included in the HERstory exhibit. Inspred by the star of "I Love Lucy," Artist Meena Schaldenbrand used cotton, net, lace, beads, sequins, pearls, ric-rac, trims and yarns to hand embroidered and free-motion quilt Lucy’s hair and face. She free motion embroidered text onto the quilt. Tubes and couched yarns completed this vibrant piece!
