To The Stars Through Difficulties

 We were recently invited to a
Christmas Party
in Scottsdale, Arizona
where Mr. Cactus does
some consulting work.
Right as we walked in,
glancing past all of the lovely food on display,
I immediately noticed
an exquisite quilt
that was the center
of attention on
one of the board room walls.
(I must be a quilter:)
 Ad Astra
Per Aspra
in Latin
translates
To the Stars Through Difficulties
Made by Art Quilter and
Fiber Artist
Linda McCurray
Gilbert, Arizona 2003
 Linda is a previous employee of
Ledgerwood Associates
and made this quilt as a gift
at the completion of
their office building in Scottsdale.
 All of the fabrics are hand dyed
with skillfull machine quilting.
 Roman Triumphal arches
dot the exterior of the building
and served as inspriation
for Linda's design.
Linda is an award winning quilter
and a member of
Studio Art Quilters Association
and Arizona Quilt Guild.
