Simple Play


Simple Play, by Aisha Lumumba, 2009.

Simple Play was the  featured quilt of the week in the November 29, 2009 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt© newsletter. It was created by Aisha Lumumba. This quilt is part of a wonderful fiber, bead and mixed media exhibit at the Atrium on Sweet Auburn.  Each piece of art in the exhibit features butterflies, and the exhibit is entitled Resplendent
Aisha has captured some of our fondest childhood memories in Simple Play. When I saw it, I was instantly transported to Crossett, Arkansas, having been ordered by my mother to go outside and play until it was time for church.
