Hand-lettered lines from Angelou's "Phenomenal Woman" poem create spotlight rays in Stacy Westís exquisite quilt. Stacy used Photoshop® to eliminate the background, increase the contrast, and decrease the number of colors in the original photograph, enabling her to reduce the face to a minimal range of values without losing the essence of the subject's identity.
