Marilyn Rose Journal Quilt: Interstate 20 between Baton Rouge and Lafayette

Mississippi Quilt Association Member Marilyn Rose

calls the series of Journal Quilts she made in her first year, "Drive By Shootings".

 

She snapped photos of the scenes with her point-and-shoot camera "from behind the wheel going way too fast on the highway".
