A prayer flag for Boston

Aloha is the flag I sent to Boston after reading about a  request call from the
 North Jersey Modern Quilt Guild. 
I used fabric paints, finger tips and a big stitch to make one of my favorite and reoccurring themes,
this is a  one  word that has many levels and meanings, many.
below, a bit closer look .
a month or so ago
 I did an exchange of prayer flags with a group of artists I have traded with for years. we started with fabric postcard with " art2mail" in 2006 if  I recall, and  this arting  still goes on with an occasional  "something else"  challenge exchange . The half dozen  members remaining in contact is a manageable  amount to trade with .
And Getting original fabric art in your mail is a most wondermous thing.
 do you think this might just be a modern  form of pen pals ? 
  are 4 Flags I made and sent to Texas, Ohio, and England .

I kept the Grace one for my collection
  above are the flags  that came in my mailbox.
we each picked what ever words we wanted to reflect a sentiment
blowing in the breeze
and around the planet.
 Thank you Kate, Barb and Jo!
