Ms. Butlers art quilt of radiant colors steals the eyes and invites the observer into a visual world that is so unlike other modern images. Here is the clown caduceus surrounded by playful parts of life. I hang it in my office so that all who come know that, here, medicine will be in a context of joy and laughter. The quilt shouts that in color and design!

I am very moved by the work you are doing in educating our young children to think in terms of peace, racial awareness and mutual understanding. Fashion is a beautiful career in and of itself, but what you are doing with it sets a new precedent to its level of beauty. Keep the spirit up, and keep quilting!
