What is your group’s artwork about?
“The theme of our quilt square is to display how the wonders of peace on Earth and the development of science due to cooperation among the nations combine to make the world a better place. The colors, arrangement, and symbols on the square were each put into place with careful thought and planning. First are the GSUSA acronym and the troop number. We want to let the world know that we are the Girl Scouts of the United States of America, and we aren’t afraid to show it.
The American flag is prominently displayed in the upper right-hand corner to signify the pride we have for our country. The pride we feel for our state is represented by our state’s initials that were painted in our state’s official colors. The peace sign in the middle of the design was placed there to show its importance. It symbolizes the world peace that we are hoping and working towards. Next is the double helix, which is the approximate structural shape of DNA and represents every subcategory of science. The light bulb symbolizes the ideas that Girl Scouts have to uphold the Girl Scout Promise and Law. The multi-colored light beams represent the unique ways Girl Scouts share ideas with everyone they meet. Lastly, the vivid colors and patterns symbolize happiness. Our dream rocket quilt square was made by a team of friends with lots of love.”
