Timeless Sands

Timeless Sands by Aisha Lumumba

The featured quilt of the week in the November 7, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt  is called Timeless Sands, and it was made by Aisha Lumumba. It is one of the quilts featured in an upcoming quilt exhibit called Vistas. In addition to the quilts of Aisha, the exhibit will feature the quilts of Janice Hunter and the bead work of Elaine Parker. 

Timeless Sands is a landscape quilt. This type of quilt allows the quilter to become an artist as the quilt is created in free form without a pattern. The fabric becomes the paint as the quilters choose fabrics that will lend realism to the quilt.  In her quilt, Aisha also included herdsmen and camels to give the desert scene more realism.
