Gumbo Ladies 2 was featured in the August16, 2009 of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter. It was created by Aisha Lumumba.

This quilt depicts two ladies making gumbo. It is appliquéd and pieced with hand painted fabric and altered fabrics. It is embellished with beads and hand quilted by Aisha.

Gumbo Ladies 2, which measures 45 x 65 inches, took second place in the “hanging quilts” category at the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Show. The vibrant colors and the way it captures the scene makes it a real show stopper.
