African Quilts

African Quilts with
Bird Themes

    Recently Miriam, a person with a life-long interest in quilts, and a quilter of some merit herself, attended an exhibition of quilts from Africa, in London, ON. Among the varied stunning exhibits, it was remarkable to see how many of the quilts featured birds as the focal point of the work, to say nothing of the other wildlife depicted in many of the quilts.
    I wish that I had had the opportunity to go with her since I am always impressed by the sheer artistic skill of quilters, and I have a deep and abiding admiration for the people who transform pieces of fabric into true works of art.
    Congratulations to the organizers of this presentation of African quilts.
