Malala Yousafzai is the youngest recipient to ever win a Nobel Peace Prize. She won the award for her determined and outspoken appeal for worldwide access to education. Artist Gabriele DiTota was so impressed with Malala’s story and inspiration to educate others during a time of oppression in countries like Pakistan that she dedicated her HERstory exhibit quilt to her.
Gabriele used techniques with painted, stamping and raw edge appliqué. She used materials such as including cottons, inks and acrylic inks to create her quilt.
