LaMoyne stars and Ashanti dolls express the wish of every parent - bring to us a healthy child. This quilt combines the cloth of Senegal and Nigeria with the akuaba doll design of Ghana to state the wish of all people in all places - let this girl be strong, this boy be swift, let our child go beyond us in deed and reward. And so the doll children break out from the wished upon stars through the border of red birth to the red black border of life. And then for our child we wish again and again we hope.
