Currently on Exhibit
The theme for the 12th annual African American Quilt Guild of Oakland display is featured fabric. Members were given one piece of three fabrics (small orange/green print, small brown/red flecks and pink/orange) to make a small piece. Each quilter was only to use three other fabrics - for a total of 4 fabrics for the entire piece. It will be interesting to note how each piece of fabric inspired the outcome of the small piece.
The African American Quilt Guild of Oakland meets on the 4th Saturday of the month at the West Oakland Library at 1:00 p.m. All are welcome!
